We are excited to announce that the Department of Dance proposed a new discipline to be added to Laney College. Over the course of two years, the development of our new discipline, “Folk Dance” was discussed among dance faculty, college and district admin, college and District curriculum committee members, arts industry professionals, and Bay Area arts stakeholders. The new Folk Dance discipline was approved and instituted into the Department of Dance in the Fall of 2017! Teaching and performing artists may now secure a Folk Dance certificate (target date Fall 2021).
Stay tuned for more exciting news about Folkloric Dance forms at Laney College!
