The Golden West College Dance Program includes general education, education for an A.A. with a major in Dance, and transfer to upper-division at colleges and universities. In a positive and creative environment, students are encouraged to develop their individual artistic identity along with a sense of the responsibility and discipline that is necessary for further study in a university or conservatory environment and a professional career.

The program is designed to guide students as they develop individual strengths, acquire new skills, and discover hidden talents. The program and members of the faculty provide services to the campus and community in the form of public performances, master classes, and workshops, fundraising, concert tours, adjudication, and significant outreach for the recruitment of new students. 

Most of the courses in this program  transfer to the California State University (CSU) system, the University of California (UC) system and Private colleges and universities. Please see your GWC Counselor early in your studies to choose the transfer option that is right for you.
