The UArizona College of Fine Arts and College of Humanities has many students majoring in all ranges, from foreign languages to theatre and music. Many of these students are double majoring within the colleges, as well as across campus.
One of those students in Noah Huang. He’s a Biology, Dance double major with a minor in Japanese.
“For me, coming into college meant exploring everything I was passionate about,” Huang said.
Huang has been dancing ballet since he was seven years old. He didn’t want to give that up for his dreams to be a doctor, so he combined his two passions at the University of Arizona.
Huang’s Advance Ballet Professor Autumn Eckman thinks dance and medicine can actually compliment each other.
“I think he’s going to have a great understanding of how the physical body works,” Eckman said. “There is definitely a connection between the medicine and science and physical aspect that helps us understand the body in dance.”
