Valencia College Dance Program
Our goal is to provide quality technical training and the enhancement of the overall dance experience. We are committed to promoting an inclusive and collaborative learning environment that serves students who desire dance as a professional career or novice students who would like to experience a new form of artistic expression. A strong technical emphasis is placed on a wide variety of dance disciplines available to students from any dance background. We provide a variety of performance opportunities for our dancers with the goal of strengthening their professional training experience. Valencia College offers a solid dance education, one that will ensure its students a future in the performing arts.

Degree pathways are designed for the student who plans to transfer to a Florida public institution as a junior to complete a Bachelor’s degree after completing an Associate in Arts degree at Valencia. Students who plan to transfer to a limited-access program are responsible for completing the specific requirements of the institution to which they will transfer as completion of this degree pathway does not guarantee admission to an upper division limited-access program.
Auditions for the program will consist of a technique class: ballet barre and center,
modern combination and jazz combination. Individual choreography or a solo is not
required. Participants are encouraged to wear black leotards and pink tights for the
women and white shirt and black tights for the men. Please bring all dance shoes.
