The High School program places emphasis on outstanding technical proficiency, while simultaneously cultivating an environment where creativity and authentic expression can flourish. Students are encouraged and empowered to push themselves to the next level – whether that means sharpening their existing skills or going beyond their comfort zone to explore a new dance genre.
Classroom instruction introduces the fundamental theories of dance, in addition to the theatrical aspect of the dance performance. Students study various dance styles such as modern, hip hop, jazz and tap, while exploring the unique dynamics of each. Students also create pieces individually and in groups, and learn the value of self- choreography. Each semester culminates with a dance recital.
Students have the opportunity to audition for the Elevation of Dance Team. This group is a vital part of SVC High School culture, and performs throughout the year at athletic events, assemblies and pep rallies.
