Dance

Dance.JPGThe Elsie Allen Dance Program provides dancers with a solid foundation for dance and helps them discover and develop their artistic side.

Our beginning class teaches students introductory techniques in ballet, jazz, modern and hip hop.  The intermediate class continues to build on technique as well as introduces elements of choreography by using various creative approaches such as improvisation.  Our advanced class focuses on creating and teaching choreography by using the tools they learned in the beginning and intermediate levels.  All classes emphasize fitness, flexibility and coordination as well as teamwork and communication.  Students are given the opportunity to show their work at our annual dance show and various school events. 

Students are encouraged and given the direction they need to shine.  They discover their strengths and reach their own personal potential.  Our dancers strive to inspire others through personal stories and sharing their passion for dance.
