    Credit Values and Student Scheduling

    Each level of dance spans two periods of the course schedule. Incremental credit values of .50 and 1.0 are given based upon the time spent per style of dance (i.e., A Dance 1 student spends nine weeks in each of four styles of dance, thus earning .50 credit for each style). Student schedules are designed on an individual basis. All students are expected to take two or three contrasting styles. Advanced dance classes require prerequisites that may only be waived by the department chair. Class placement and all schedules are subject to approval by the dance faculty and the head of the department. All dance classes may be repeated for credit.
