The Dance Program focuses on the development of technical and conceptual skills in the expressive language of Dance, encouraging students to communicate through movement. Students explore artistic perception and the creative process by solving problems in choreography and performance.
Guest artists expand the students' awareness of diverse cultural and historical perspectives of dance as well as different dance styles. A blend of contemporary and more traditional strategies are used to make dances, sometimes integrating components of text or responding to the environment for a site specific piece, for example. Individual focus, as well as group camaraderie, is required and students perform in a wide variety of settings. By pursuing meaning in the Arts through the practice, discipline and rigor of dance; students find considerable personal satisfaction, as well as multiple ways to apply creative problem-solving, critical thinking and positive focus to many areas of their lives and work.
