Purdue University. College of Liberal Arts. Division of Dance



  • Existence: 1991

Historical Information

In 1991 the dance courses and the student dance company, Purdue Repertory Dance Company, were administratively transferred to the Creative Arts Department and called the Division of Dance. The two dance studios remained on the 3rd floor of Lambert Gym. At the same time, the Creative Arts Department changed its name to Visual and Performing Arts Department.

In the fall of 2003, the Division of Dance physically moved out of the constrained Lambert Gym teaching space and began conducting classes in two new dance studios in Pao Hall of Visual and Performing Arts. Performances are held in the Nancy T. Hansen Theatre and the Dance Studio Theatre.
