Dance Education

Weber State University Dance Program

A dance degree from Weber State University opens doorways to careers in performance, choreography, dance education, administration and emerging technologies.  Dance education majors will leave Weber State with the necessary classes to have a Utah secondary license with an elementary endorsement (K-12)!

Our faculty have professional backgrounds and teach many different styles of dance.  Visiting artists come from around the country to enhance our program through instruction, choreography and performance.
