The aim of the Dance Class is for students to experience, understand, value and enjoy dance as an art form through the study of dance performance, composition and the appreciation of dance. Students are exposed to Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, & Hip Hop. This art class is open to all students at CHS, including those who have never danced before. Many times almost half of the students performing in the Winter and Spring Showcases have never danced or performed on stage. In a short amount of time they learn the art of dance and are so excited to perform for you and demonstrate all that they have learned.
