Q: Do I have to take level 1 classes if I have dance experience already?
A: No. Level 1 classes are meant for beginning dance students. Most students with prior dance experience can start in level 2 classes. However, a signature or a placement audition is needed to skip a level. Signatures should be requested from Angela Rosenkrans or Karryn Allen, Directors of the Dance Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Audition information can be found here scottsdalecc.edu/dance.

Q: What do I wear to dance class? Do I have to wear tights?
A: There is not a harsh dress code at SCC. Clothing should be comfortable to move in, be form fitting so that the instructors can see your alignment, and cover your body appropriately. Shoes: Ballet shoes are required for ballet classes. Jazz classes either require jazz shoes or bare feet. Modern classes are done in bare feet. Hip Hop classes require clean, non-marking, tennis shoes that are only worn in class. Social and World dance classes require different types depending on the instructor.

A: 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.
