Dance Academy Level One

The Dance Academy is a unique learning experience for the winter/spring 2021 semester. All dance classes will be working toward pieces that will be performed in our end of semester dance showcase. For more information about project learning-based instruction and our final dance showcase please visit our dance department page.

Dance Academy Level 1 students will have two in-person classes per week. These classes will take place Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:15-7:45 p.m. Weekly in-person classes will include a Dynamic Technique and Choreography class on Mondays and a Ballet class on Wednesdays. Dynamic Technique and Choreography will focus on jumps, leaps, turns, conditioning, flexibility, and artistic expression through combinations in different dance styles. Ballet will focus on developing technique, muscle articulation, strength, endurance, proper alignment, and artistry.

Dance Academy students will also receive nine (9) half-hour private lessons throughout the session. These lessons will be scheduled at a time that works for both the student and the instructor and will focus on enhancing individual technique and skills as well as learning solo choreography to be performed in our virtual dance showcase.

Students enrolled in the dance academy will also learn and perform one group piece in our virtual dance showcase.

Students of all levels are invited to join our Dance Academy program. Proper level placement ensures students learn, develop, and grow at the level most appropriate to their current amount of experience and dance technique. Placement in any Academy level will be at the sole discretion of BW CAS
