The SWC dance department has truly been a blessing to me. Coming into this college and learning about the dance department, I didn't expect it to be more than just a department where I'm just surrounded by dancers. If not I was surrounded by my best friends and my support system. I'm so thankful for all the dance professors for showing me that the diversity of what this beautiful art is. I'm so very thankful for the opportunity of working with such amazing people who are just as passionate as I am about what I want to do with my life; because dance is everything. SWC dance has transformed my meaning of family.

What better place to be than Southwestern College. SWC has so many choices - so far I've taken ballet, modern, jazz, pointe, partnering, and ballroom! I really enjoy being a part of the program because it helps me develop and discover new dance styles.

It's an amazing experience to dance at Southwestern College. The program helps me grow as a dancer by experimenting with multiple styles Ballet, Points & Partnering, Jazz and Modern. The teachers are first-class and have a strong technique.

The Southwestern dance concerts are a really good opportunity to explore the professional world of dance. Being a part of the dance concerts helped me understand what's required to be a successful dancer. I enjoyed the good atmosphere among dancers, staff and even the audience. It made me feel really proud of my hard work acquired through rehearsals. What is really amazing is the sense of union developed among dancers and choreographers during the event. Professionalism, good atmosphere, and creativity are just a few of many things that SWC dance program can offer you.

I recommend other students to take dance classes at SWC. I see dance as an opportunity for a healthy lifestyle for both young and old, especially those who have an injury. There are many stretches and exercises to strengthen different muscles. Also, it is a great way to meet new friends.

Southwestern college has become my second home. I stopped dancing in high school and it felt like something was missing from my life. The Dance Department here at Southwestern College has truly helped me in finding myself and my happiness again! I wouldn’t trade my experience or my new family for anything in the world!

SWC is the school that will help you in your dance training; and not only prepare you for a four year collage, but also going out on auditions in dance, music, and theater. I am getting better and better everyday in my ballet training and now I am learning how to work behind the scenes in dance production.
