DANCE BANNER

The mission of the Dance department is to create a climate of professionalism that encourages all students to expand their technical knowledge and creative abilities as dancers; to create an environment which supports effort, hard work and risk taking so that each student confidently uses their talents to reach their full and unique potential; and to foster respect for the art form and for the diversity and passions of the individuals within it.

 

Rigorous daily technique classes are designed to develop versatile and knowledgeable dancers. Students study Ballet, Modern, Dance History, Dance Improvisation, Dance Composition, Conditioning, Repertory (Ballet or Modern); and Dance Skills. Elective class offerings include Contemporary, Pointe, and Jazz.

Students follow the curriculum prescribed by the Dance Department. Class assignments are made by the department chair and are based on age and intellectual, physical, and technical development. Spending one year in any level does not guarantee a moving up to the next level the following year.
