Dance Artist Program

Strong technique and artistry are achieved through focused and committed study year after year. Special workshops and field trips are offered in addition to rigorous classes in Ballet, Modern Dance, Tap, Musical Theatre, Jazz Dance, Pointe, and Dance Improvisation.  The Program is designed to foster physical, cognitive, social, and creative aspects of learning.  Level I, IIA, and IIB students must take Ballet and Modern Dance; they have the option to take additional classes.  Level III and IV students must take a minimum of three classes, including Ballet OR Modern Dance, and may select which classes they take.  Level placement for each class is determined by the Program Director and teaching faculty.  New students must contact the Program Director for class placement.
