The Chaffey College Dance Program, as part of the school of Visual and Performing Arts, offers a curriculum for students interested in becoming a dance major, or for non-majors, earning an Associate of Arts degree in Dance, and/or transferring to a UC/CSU University or other institution. Whether furthering dance educational and artistic goals, developing career interests and training in the commercial dance field, discovering cultural and arts interests, or enjoying physical activity and exercise, Chaffey dance students have opportunities to participate in technique and theory courses in a variety of dance genres including ballet, modern, jazz, tap, hip hop, social dance, dance history and appreciation, and movement for the stage, as well as dance performance and choreography through dance production and repertory. The program offers excellent technical dance training for all levels of experience (beginning, intermediate, and advanced) from a professional dance faculty. The dance program also provides learning and creative experiences for students and inspiration to students as they develop a lifelong appreciation of dance art and continue to enjoy and participate in dance throughout their lives.

The Chaffey Dance Program produces an annual main stage dance concert choreographed by faculty, student choreographers, and guest professionals featuring a variety of dance styles and cultures. Also annually, the Chaffey Dance Program presents its Fall Student Choreography Showcase providing opportunity for intermediate/advanced dance students to choreograph and perform for a public audience. In addition to dance workshops and productions, performance opportunities also include annual main stage musicals and other productions as part of the theatre department working collaboratively with the dance and music departments.

For any student interested in dance, Chaffey College Dance Program provides the enrichment to inspire through the study of dance.
