The Dance department provides students of all levels of experience with the opportunity to explore some of the basic movement fundamentals: world dance, modern, and choreography. Students learn dance technique and kinesthetic awareness, movement vocabulary, choreography, creative expression, musicality, and dance history. Students also have the opportunity to serve as members of their school's Dance Team. The dance program will have performances that include football games, pep rallies, campus showcases, and competitions.
