Welcome to DVC DANCE

Diablo Valley College offers a variety of dance classes for students seeking activity or pre-professional dance training. Dance Classes can be found under KNDAN or DANCE section of the DVC catalog.

Classes listed under KNDAN are activity based classes geared for the recreational dancer with little to no dance training. Classes listed under DANCE are for students who have previous dance training, accelerated dancers, pre-professional dancers and dancers who wish to pursue a career in the dance field.

Students are encouraged to speak with a faculty member regarding placement in upper level dance classes and/or any classes beyond the fundamentals level.

Why DVC Dance?
Diablo Valley College's Dance enjoys a reputation for quality, creativity and a comprehensive curriculum. The PE Department promotes high artistic and technical standards. Instructors excel in their dance disciplines. Many dance faculty are outstanding performing artists and choreographers; several have been recognized by major arts organizations in the Bay Area. The student completing a two year program will have the opportunity to transfer to most UC/State dance programs as well as receiving strong core dance training for other dance job related activities.

Current show information
Every year DVC dance puts on two productions: the winter production is choreographed by our faculty members and the spring production is choreographed by the students in the program. Both shows touch on various styles of the dance; including, modern, jazz, ballet, Latin, and ballroom. The productions are always very beautiful and quite a visual treat.
