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!
