This is a year-long course.

This year-long course is designed for students of all levels who are passionate about growing as a dancer and an artist. Choreography and learning how to compose original pieces of work will be the focus of the course, including how to properly stage, light, costume, and design performances. Students will also focus on furthering their technical abilities through multiple styles including, but not limited to, contemporary, jazz, ballet, modern, and hip hop. This course will aim to challenge students through varied movement sequences, performance qualities, dynamic energy shifts, and exposure to improvisational techniques. Enrolled students will be expected to perform and participate in the Dance Concert. 

Prerequisites: Dance 1 OR Dance 2 or with teacher approval. Previous dance training is highly recommended but not required.
