Dance

 Our mission is to develop technically proficient dancers who are versatile, thoughtful, and inquisitive. Guided by professionals in the field, our dancers train in classical ballet, a variety of modern and jazz styles, and cultural dances. Through daily classes, rehearsals, and performances, our dancers develop creativity, discipline, and perseverance.  Field trips and residencies with American Dance Legacy Initiative and other guest teachers enhance the students’ growth in arts and academics. Every dancer performs in our annual dance concert.
