The Blocker Dance Department
In Dance students will learn the basics fundamentals of Dance and Kinesiology. The students will be introduced to a variety of Dance genres including Ballet, Jazz, Modern, and Musical Theatre. They will demonstrate their dance knowledge through performance in and out of the classroom. Students will also learn the anatomy of the body to better understand how the body works. They will become familiar with proper stretching and conditioning exercises which will provide a safe classroom environment and create lifelong habits for a healthy lifestyle. In addition, students will also develop individual responsibility, as well as commitment to others, enhanced self-discipline, and greater self-esteem. It is the hope that all dancers will leave this department with a love for themselves, a healthy future, and a respect for the arts.
