World Dance offers students a kinesthetic approach to learning. They journey into a rich cultural landscape integrating mind, body, and spirit, through high-energy, hands-on exploration of local music, dance, and traditions of other countries and cultures.
Students learn the fundamentals of movement and technique, choreography, dance theory, and history from a global perspective with an emphasis on dance customs and current practices, and are introduced to dance traditions of West African, Bhangra, Bollywood, Afro-Brazilian, Polynesian and more.
Prior experience or proficiency in a dance style are not required to audition. We seek students who love to dance and have a strong desire to learn about dance from different cultures.
Students interested in Ballet and Modern Dance, should check out the Dance Department.
