Howard College is excited to offer students multiple opportunities to study and perform dance throughout the Academic year.  Howard College has the Howard College Dance Team and Dance Club. The Dance programs were formed to offer students an outlet for dance performance, and to create an arts outreach from Howard dance to the community. 

The Dance Team is comprised of a team of dancers who receive scholarships in order to perform at sporting events, the biannual dance concerts, as well as other local and community events.  The Dance Team will perform a variety of dance styles including Kick-line precision dance, jazz, ballet, ballroom, and hip hop. The Dance Team will promote all forms of dance, dance education, and of course the opportunities at Howard College.

"Taking dance lessons fosters miraculous changes in all ages of dancers as they explore the capabilities of their minds and bodies." 

"The results of quality dance training are seen in increased self-confidence, advanced motor skills, self-discipline, and an appreciation for the arts. These are attributes that can be carried forward into many work environments, not just careers in dance."
