Dance


Dance classes are held daily in our mirrored studio with a sprung floor and ballet barres. A larger dance studio is planned. Students gain skills and techniques essential for refinement in dance and movement in Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Ethnic, and Social Dance. Students gain an appreciation for the Arts and proficiency in choreography. Dancers also engage in activities and improvisation that foster creative expression in a nurturing setting. As participants in the New York City Ballet’s “Bridges” Program at Lincoln Center, students attend live performances by major dance companies, work with an architect and engage in activities at MOMA. Enjoyment is enhanced through workshops with professional artists, visits to museums, historic buildings and Lincoln Center as well as an ongoing association with the Alvin Alley Dance Troupe. Our other partnerships include City Center, where our students attend live performances and engage in dance classes taught by members of these professional companies. We are also affiliated with “Together in Dance,” “Creative Outlet,” “Tada,” and other arts organizations that have provided us with collaborative opportunities to enrich our students’ learning experiences.
