Overview:

Dance I uses a variety of dance styles to explore movement as a creative art form. Students learn kinesthetic awareness, proper body alignment and physical strength, flexibility, and endurance as they relate to folk dance, social dance, historical dance, concert dance and theatre dance. The goals of identifying how dance is connected to our lives and to different cultures are pursued through the thoughtful critique of dance performance and class work. Students will experience a variety of ways of moving and will explore more specific areas of dance through project work.
