Music and Dance

Gonzaga's Music and Dance programs offer students many opportunities to pursue their passions in the arts.

Our Music program offers a comprehensive program to help students develop their musicianship. Performance ensembles include choirs, an orchestra, a jazz ensemble, a wind symphony, and chamber groups. Academic programs in performance, composition, conducting, music education, jazz, and general studies give music majors and minors many options for their studies.

Our Dance program offers opportunities to students from all academic backgrounds. A Gonzaga University minor in dance exposes students to various styles of dance, the thrill of performance, and the dynamics of teaching dance.
