Upcoming Fall 2023 Dance Program


This CERTIFICATE is an immersion into performance as a way of knowing, understanding, and experiencing culture, emphasizing cultural traditions, community outreach and diversity. This dance forms or styles are strong, virile, and vital with the feeling of dynamic thrust and resistance. They are exceedingly controlled, having the power to project the gentle wind or the raging storm. Ranging from the walk and all variations, the techniques of the African dance to the delicate but powerful Ballet performances. Dance techniques embrace the leap, the hop, the skip, the jumps, falls of all descriptions and turns which balance the dancer at the most precarious angles with the ground. But more than any combination of steps.   The purpose of a dancer is to communicate feelings, state of mind, past, present, and future personal experiences. Dance is Life!


To develop dance students’ aesthetic, artistic and cultural understandings of dance in past and contemporary context through relationship with other art forms and contributions to cultures and societies.
