About The Sacred Heart University Dance Program:

Sacred Heart University Dance Programs are a profound source of energy and artistry on the Sacred Heart University campus. We offer a variety of programs to suit any level of interest, commitment and passion for dance. Students are encouraged to engage in exploration, creation and the critical thinking process all while preparing for longevity and viability within the dance world on their chosen path. For each student this means, a deeper understanding of their moving bodies, confidence in their choice to study dance at Sacred Heart and an awakening to the kaleidoscope of possibilities that could exist within their lives as a result of this choice. Our dance faculty and staff are committed to the development of well-rounded, aesthetically aware students using various forms and approaches to elevate learning.

Members are offered a variety of classes and programs which are available to enrich both their academic and artistic experience - Dance Company is a pre-professional program encompassing ballet, modern, contemporary, world dance, jazz and tap dance taught by professional instructors. Dance Ensemble is a student run program for those who want to choreograph and create their own work for public performance. Other ensembles include Ballroom Dance, Hip Hop Production and our award winning, competitive Irish Dance Ensemble, The Claddagh Dancers.

Dancers find themselves immersed in a world of creativity! All of our dance programs allow students the opportunity to perform and several of these performances are held throughout the year in our beautiful Edgerton Theatre. Each performance becomes a portrait of the community that we have created. This sense of community ensures that students develop as artists and people all while solidifying lifelong friendships amongst one another.
