The World Dance program seeks to provide the Wheaton Community with dance opportunities, exploring dance traditions from a variety of cultures found around the globe.
Experiential exposure to culture, through vital and dynamic expressive forms such as dance and music, enhances our consideration of and interaction with the fascinating choices people make as they go about their daily lives. Through weekly classes, workshops and special events World Dance contributes a significant dimension of diversity to campus life, to further intellectual, physiological and spiritual understanding of what it is to be human--alive and well at Wheaton College.
All classes are free and take place in the Ellison Dance Studio in the Balfour Hood Center. Students, Faculty, Staff, Administrators, extended Wheaton Community members are welcome!
