K-State Dance

Welcome to the K-State Dance Program

Julie Pentz, Associate Director of DanceOur Dance Program offers a theater degree with a dance concentration and a dance minor.  We assist more than 60 students every year with gaining their dance concentration or dance minor. 

We offer performance opportunities for Winter Dance, Spring Dance, and Dance Student Spotlight, to all K-State students, regardless of their major or minor.  We also have two active ensembles that are open to all K-State students.  The K-State Tap Dance Ensemble performs locally and regionally, in various venues.  The K-State African Ensemble offers experiences in West African Music and Dance.
