Explore the Department

A small department that dances in a big way.

Your dance training revolves around our state-of-the art Adelphi University Performing Arts Center (PAC), where you’ll take classes, perform and convene with your fellow dance students as well as theatre and music majors.

Even with a top-notch venue like the Adelphi PAC, you will receive the highest quality training in safe and nurturing surroundings when you find your instructor decides to hold an impromptu class or rehearsal on the grounds of our campus, which also happens to be a registered arboretum. Dance instructors may also lead class outings to New York City to attend performances, which is a short train ride away.
