There are a variety of career opportunities for dance majors including performance, education, choreography, lighting design, and stage managing. Some of the lesser known careers in dance are grant writing, videography, dance administration, dance criticism/journalism, photography, dance therapy, physiology, and dance historian. SCC provides training opportunities for the serious dance student in many of these fields. However, since most fields in dance are highly competitive, it is important for the student to have the commitment and determination to succeed.
The dance rooms are located in the PE Building. SCC Campus Map PE Building Map.
