This basic course is an introduction to the fundamentals of Jazz, Ballet, Tap and Musical Theater Dance which includes movement, positions, vocabulary, barre work, and choreography.

In each dance class, students will be expected to participate in warm-ups, across the floor combinations, variations, and choreography. This course will work towards the culmination of a fall dance performance as well as participation in the spring musical. Dance combines fitness, discipline, agility, coordination, rhythm, and artistic expression which can improve a student’s overall health and well-being.

In addition, dance benefits a student’s kinesthetic intelligence, enabling them to increase their ability to process and retain information through training of their body.

Dance is offered for middle and high school students in replacement of P.E.
