Are you looking for a community that really understands dance? Here at Calvin, dance is an expression of art, a celebration of culture, and a form of worship.

Through your collaboration with other dancers and your many performance opportunities, you’ll advance your technical skills in tap, jazz, modern, ballet, and sacred dance. Learn the quickstep or salsa. Choreograph your own routine. Leap across the stage in front of live, packed audiences and hear the roar of applause. With every step, spin, and flourish, you’ll give God glory and share the beauty of dance with the world.

Dance at Calvin will prepare you to become an instructor, performer, choreographer, or dance therapist.
