Dance Arts

Preschool
  • Learning the art of dance helps young children develop knowledge, skill, and understanding about the world. With dance, students can explore and control their body movements. These activities are great for development and stimulate connections in the growing brain. Our preschoolers show off their dancing skills at their end of year performance!
Elementary School
  • Armenian Dance was added to the elementary curriculum in the 2015-2016 school year. Each week, students visit the dance classroom to learn about different types of Armenian folk music and choreography. Through music and movement, students develop their large motor skills, hand-eye coordination, self-expression, and confidence. Students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of school programs and performances throughout the year.
Middle School
  • Middle School Dance Elective is a class that offers great fun with a foundation etched in integrity and discipline by each and every student. Middle School Dance is a one-year course open to 7th and 8th grade students. Students will study the elements of dance through the exploration of Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, and Armenian dance.
  • Junior Conservatory is a by-audition-only after school program open to our 7th and 8th grade middle school students, and allows advanced dancers to explore more difficult choreography, and showcase their skills.
