Associate of Arts in Dance - AA

The Dance program at Houston Community College strives to develop well-rounded, culturally diverse, thinking dancers. Dance at HCC creates socially responsible dance professionals by introducing students to diverse technical practices that include a strong base in both western and non-western dance forms, as well as providing opportunities to perform, work with guest artists from across the globe, present choreography, and attend conferences and workshops at a national level. Students are encouraged to explore their leadership potential as they develop artistic excellence and integrity in preparing for careers and transfer opportunities in the dance field.
