Dance B.A.

Dance is the perfect way for you to express yourself. You want to pursue it through your studies — but you also desire a Christian education.  Whether you want a career as a dance teacher and possibly own a dance studio, or as a professional performing dancer, the dance major provides the option of a pedagogy track or a performance track. Palm Beach Atlantic University is one of only three schools in the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities to offer a major in Dance.

The dance major at PBA will allow you to master a variety of dance techniques, display articulate verbal and non-verbal communication, understand dance from a historical and cultural perspective and perform with a unique artistic voice.


“PBA had a big part in giving me the confidence to face those unknowns with determination and excitement.” Hannah Lolita Nelsonm '16
