The dance program is taught by Ms. Papa and gives students the opportunity to discover several styles of dance, as well as the opportunity to choreograph their own works. All students in dance classes have the chance to perform at the end of every semester.
The mission of the Dance Department is to provide an environment conducive to the highest caliber of dance training, art making and scholarship. Our approach encourages fluidity between the processes of making art, honing craft and deepening intellectual explorations. We cultivate the individual creative voice with exposure to diverse technical and philosophical approaches. Such an environment nurtures exceptional dance practitioners, allows us to make creative and intellectual contributions to the larger dance community, and fosters collaborative endeavors within and beyond our field.
