The Upper School dance curriculum provides challenging opportunities for dancers of all ages, abilities, and interests. Along with the jazz and musical theatre techniques introduced in the Middle School, there are courses in tap, modern, post-modern, ballet, and African dance. Students are encouraged to create their own choreography, resulting in a creative and cooperative environment. This collaboration is furthered during studio performances, where students perform their work for their peers and receive constructive criticism. As the program progresses, students are given increasing autonomy, allowing them more freedom of self-direction and self-discovery. The annual winter dance concert, open to all upper schoolers, not just those enrolled in dance courses, is a showcase of talent choreographed by professionals as well as students.
