Choreography and Senior Showcases—in order to insure the quality of these productions, the dance faculty will review and approve all pieces for inclusion in the showcases.
Informances—informal performances of works, works-in-progress or class works that will be shown in J235 or alternate sites. Students do not earn additional academic credit (e.g., DANA 443 or 444) for their involvement with Informances unless the work is a project for another class (e.g., DANT 201). They are scheduled as needed.
Dance Education majors must adhere to the requirements and regulations as set forth by the College of Education. In addition, dance education interns will not participate in outside activities during the semester they are enrolled in EDCO 403. Examples (though not an exhaustive list) of outside activities would include: participation in dance productions on campus; performing with dance companies; leadership roles in student, social, professional, or community organizations; employment.
Dance Education majors are reminded that they may have to travel farther than students in other content areas for their field experience and/or internship because there are limited number of dance education programs with certified teachers in school districts surrounding the Winthrop University campus. Please consider the need to travel, relocate, and/or make special housing arrangements during the field experience and/or internship semesters.
The class, DANA 442: Senior Showcase, is an optional elective for Dance Education majors.

Faculty and students from the department regularly attend the regional American College Dance Association (ACDA). When the department chooses to allocates funds to support this travel, the policies below will apply to the process.
