Dance is a way to connect, communicate, create, express, and embody a healthy and empowered way of being.
The variety of classes, levels, teachers, and styles gives everyone who enters the beautiful studio in the Currier Center a safe place to land and an inspiring place to move from. Whether you arrive with experience, or want to try a dance class for the very first time, you are welcomed.
The dance program offers students technique classes, choreographic opportunities, and chances to explore new forms of dance across cultures. Guest teachers and visiting faculty from across the country frequently visit campus to work with students. Past guest teachers include Nimbus Dance, Julie Muskat of Threads Dance Project, and Tyler Gilstrap of Battleworks Dance Company.
The Winter and Spring Dance Concerts in Calder Hall feature student work from the year. Project Week and Senior Exhibitions are a time for students to explore their own independent projects, which often culminate in informal performances. The Dance Ensemble is a way for a community of committed dancers to delve deeper into the creative process of building repertory, rehearsing and then performing in local schools and venues. There are several annual trips to area theaters to see the work of professional companies and choreographers.
The Dance program is dedicated to serving all students who bring it to life with their love, passion, joy, and hard work.
