​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Pathways of Success​

The SAC Dance Department is noted for the breadth of its curriculum and the individualized attention given to students' training. We cherish the long-standing relationships we have with our neighboring colleges and institutions abroad and many of our graduates transfer to reputable and prestigious 4-year university dance programs such as CSU Fullerton​, CSU Long Beach​, UC Irvine​, and Chapman University​.  Our dance majors also have successful performing, choreography, and teaching careers. Each step of the way, the SAC Dance Department leads its students to a pathway of success!

Auditions are not required for admission into the department, but auditions are required for all dance concert productions. Proficiency levels are required for course completion.

​The Santa Ana College Dance Department is dedicated to serving its students by educating and ​encouraging them to accomplish academic, degree, and life-learning goals. To uphold this pursuit, here are helpful guidelines to maintain success as we continue Temporary Remote Instruction (TRI) for the Spring Semester 2021.
  • Students should use a computer/laptop/tablet with strong WIFI connection to ensure ACCESSIBILITY. A mobile phone used for class viewing and instruction may not be the most effective method for learning for both student and instructor.
  • If enrolled in a movement dance class, a working webcam with adequate visuals and speaker volume is required in order to be properly be viewed by the instructor.
  • Sufficient space to move safely inside or outside your home "dance space" is very important!
