Dance Enrichment

Education in the art of dance engages the artistic processes of creating, performing, and critical analysis. These processes require scholars to read symbol systems, use critical thinking skills, excel in nonverbal reasoning and communication, exchange ideas, work cooperatively and collaboratively with others, and interact within a multicultural society. More comprehensively, education in the art of dance develops kinesthetic and spatial learning as well as intra- and interpersonal knowledge of self and others.

 

Scholars who study dance are:

• Self-motivated, disciplined, and focused in their everyday lives.

• Expressive in their communication of emotions, thoughts, and feelings.

• Creative and imaginative.

• Able to critically analyze their own work and the work of others.
