The mission of the Dance Department is to provide a well-rounded and rigorous dance curriculum for students who wish to pursue a professional career in dance. The highly concentrated curriculum is implemented to challenge the students for growth aesthetically, artistically, intellectually and personally. To train students to be wholistic, moving and thinking artists in preparing them for collegiate and professional careers in dance; equipping them with the information, discipline, and focus to be a prominent force in dance as a career, and through the discipline gained, be successful in any field outside of dance. In addition, we strive to encourage students to be involved in the growth of their community, school culture, and to encourage them to be advocates for art individually and in the arts society.
