Name change of studio level Dance courses
In revising the Dance curriculum, area requests to remove the word " Studio" from a selection of one (1) credit courses, and change the numerical system from Roman numbering, to Arabic numbering to be consistent with all new courses in the discipline. No change to course content.

For example, DAN 17001: Studio Modern I, would be DAN 17001: Modern 1.

DAN 17055 Studio Men's Ballet, would be DAN 17055 Men's Ballet.

The proposed changes aligns with renaming other DAN courses to provide continuity and reduce confusion.

Note: DAN 17010 is incorrectly named in the CIM course list. The course is listed as DAN 17010 Studio Ballet I in the course catalog.
These changes are to create uniformity and to allow for a greater perception and reality of inclusion based on abilities and strengths. This is part of three proposals all designed to help promote two aspects within the Dance Major Degrees which we believe will help us to grow in terms of student enrollment in both the BA in Dance Studies and the BFA in Dance Performance. These aspects are Diversity in terms of students, faculty, curriculum and recognized talent and Rigor in terms of preparing dancers for a variety of employment opportunities in Dance and related fields.
New course names would be applied as electives to the following impacted programs:
BFA Dance
BA Dance Studies
BFA Musical Theatre
Dance Minor
