Grand Valley State University Dance Program offers students a chance to develop technical dance skills through rigorous technique courses and performing opportunities.  The Dance Program guides a dancer's artistry, technique, emotions and physical facility to converge into a unique and dynamic performer. Through daily technique courses in Modern, Ballet, Jazz and Pointe, each dancer hones their craft in small classes with one-on-one Faculty/Student instruction.  GVSU Dance enables each dancer to interact within a dynamic group of performers while building a network of resources for their future careers.
