Dance Department

The Dance Department at San Diego Mesa College offers over 40 active courses, providing a lower division curriculum comparable to those in four-year institutions. We are training students to transfer to four year universities, as well as to take part in the growing field of entertainment. The Dance Department has demanding technical dance classes and rewarding exploration and information classes in theory, history, and choreography that provide students the opportunity to learn about and create movement as a rich part of the fabric and culture of our world. For more than 40 years, we have shaped dancers, dance lovers, and dance makers here at San Diego Mesa College. Be a part of the next generations of movers and shakers!

About the Dance Program

The mission of the San Diego Mesa College Dance Program is to promote student and faculty development as professional dance artists, performers, choreographers, and critical thinkers, as well as active community members. Our philosophy embraces dance in its many forms, and we offer multiple levels of ballet, modern dance, jazz, tap, Latin dance, and a changing selection of world dance forms. The Program is committed to the growth and discipline of all dance forms through the dedicated study of dance technique and research in a nurturing and challenging environment. Through superior teaching and personalized mentoring, students prepare for a professional career in dance or for transfer to a four-year institution.
