Welcome to the Dance Department at Howard Community College.
The HCC Dance Program is a unique program designed to provide students, dance majors and non-majors, with a comprehensive and diverse education in dance with classes in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Modern, Ballroom and Latin Dance, Hip-Hop, Dance Improvisation and more.
For those who wish to pursue an A.A degree in Dance, we offer a rigorous and focused education which prepares a dance major for transfer into a BA, BS, or BFA program at a four-year college or university. We have dance faculty dedicated to assessing student progress in order to meet individual needs and offer master classes taught by renowned guest teachers. HCC students of dance also have opportunities for performance including outreach projects, students choreography showcases, Howard County Community Dance Festival and Arts Collective Dance Company Concerts.
Please check our Calendar/Events for information on upcoming dance concerts, programs, workshops, and auditions. Dance Department workshops and auditions are open to all HCC students. If you have any questions, please contact Renée Brozic Barger, Acting Chair of Dance and Theatre, at email@example.com or Joan Nicholas-Walker, Coordinator of Dance at firstname.lastname@example.org.
