Beyond the Classroom

Several dance activities and events extend beyond campus, which Minnesota State Mankato Dance students become involved in. 

The city of Mankato is located just 80 southwest from one the most thriving and diverse dance communities in the nation. Students also attend professional dance performances presented at major Twin Cities-base venues, including the Cowles Center for Dance, Walker Arts Center, The Ordway Center for the Performing Art and Northrup Auditorium. Each spring, students have the opportunity to attend the North Central conference of the American College Dance Association, which is held each year in the upper Midwest region of the United States. This conference is an extraordinary event for students to dance, perform and view college dance from the region.

Student Dance Coalition

The purpose of this organization shall be to advance the appreciation of the art of dance for the members as well as the surrounding community. Find out more on Facebook.
