Dance 1


In this "not your typical PE class", students learn and apply the basic elements of dance- using their bodies to communicate while using spatial awareness and timing.  We utilize the basic seven movements of dance as a foundation to apply in a variety of units including ballet/lyrical, jazz, hip hop, and partner/social dance.  Each class and semester is a little different, learning new choreography and sometimes trying new units such as tap, African, bellydance, contemporary, etc. Dance is an engaging, fun, intellectually and physically active course!

Please take a look at the Etiquette page to find out how we respect one another and accept our unique abilities and backgrounds we bring to the dance studio.

Please take a look at the dance class video folder to watch students perform class and group dances, and please refer to documents for make-up work.
