High School Dance

Our High School dance class is for students in High School, 9th - 12th grades.   This class covers the subjects of Tap and Jazz, and is for dancers who are continuing their dance education, and builds progressively on skills in the two subjects.  It is a one hour class, with the class time split between the two subjects.

The High School class will perform one dance in the recital in June.   Instructors determine whether the dance will be tap or jazz.   This allows time to learn and rehearse the performance piece, and time to focus on the technique for the other subject as well.

The class is suitable for beginners as well as those students wanting to build on progressive skills in Tap and Jazz.  Students who take this class throughout their high school years will be adequately prepared for any further dance education they choose to pursue in a college atmosphere.   They will also feel completely prepared for their Senior Solo, which will be performed in the June recital of their Senior Year.  (See the office for more information about Senior Solos.)

Dress Code:  Dancers must wear a leotard and tights, in any color, for dance class.  Dance skirts or dance shorts, and dance warm-ups are allowed.  Please pull your hair up and away from the face and neck.   Refrain from t-shirts, shorts and other baggy clothing, as it hinders the ability of the teacher to see the body's lines, which is important for proper teaching and correction.   See our dancewear store for shoe requirements.
