Dance students engage in a rigorous course of study preparing them for advanced work in concert dance and related fields. This program emphasizes the development of strong dance technique in the disciplines of ballet, modern and jazz dance. Additionally, students will study improvisation, composition, dance history and culture, anatomy of movement, health and nutrition, and stagecraft. A spring field trip to the National High School Dance Festival has become a typical component of the program.
Students without prior or some dance experience should begin with Intro to Dance.
Although students do not need to have prior dance experience, good physical conditioning is recommended as this is a physically rigorous program.
