Students who study Dance in the Upper School gain experience in artistic self-expression but also learn the basic principles of anatomy, alignment, dance terminology, and performance.  Combining technical movement and composition with imagination and history, students perform individually and as a department during the year. The study of choreography and various styles of dance, including ballet and modern, provide the academic underpinnings of student-led demonstrations of technique and collaboration. Students will have the opportunity to observe and experience master classes from visiting teachers, in addition to attending local performances by national and international professional dancers.
