Dance

Dance 9, 10, 11 & 12

Beginner, intermediate or advanced; everyone, at any level, is welcome! Students will learn basic stretches, steps and techniques from a variety of contemporary dance styles (ballet, lyrical, modern, Latin and Afro-Caribbean). Students will participate in a variety of ‘dancers’ workouts’ designed to strengthen and tone the core and the major muscle groups as well as build flexibility and endurance. Students will also participate in occasional written activities and group projects.

More advanced students will be invited to mentor and choreograph performance pieces. Students may have the opportunity to see live performances during field trips. Whether you are new to dance, are a trained dancer and want to work on choreography, or just want an excuse to stay fit and have fun, this class is for you. Let your creativity guide you as we explore the possibilities of dance!
