Secondary Dance

Through the study of dance, students will learn respect for many different cultures and our community’s diverse population. Dance provides learners an opportunity to enhance their awareness of movements through the body, and fosters creativity through exploration, improvisation, problem solving, and technique. Students will create and perform choreographic works that express their individual voices.
