Education and Enrichment.
THE ART OF DANCE
The art of dance uses movement to communicate meaning about the human experience. It is far more than exercise or entertainment. It is a powerful medium to express one's values, thoughts, and aspirations about the lives we live and the world in which we live. Dance is able to transcend all age and cultures while speaking a single language all can understand.
EDUCATION IN THE ART OF DANCE
Education in the art of dance develops the knowledge and skills required to create, perform, and understand movement as a means of artistic communication. A comprehensive education includes improvisation, technique, choreography, performance, observation and analysis. We look to give exposure to dance history and cultures, kinesiology and anatomy, and movement theories further enriches the dance experience. Our holistic approach teaches dancers with a mind and body approach how a dance can touch the heart and mind of many, while giving dancers life skills that go far beyond the dance floors of this studio.
Importance of Education in the Art of Dance
Education in the art of dance engages the artistic processes of creating, performing and critical analysis. These processes require students 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.
RESEARCH ABOUT SUCESS
Arts research shows that students who study dance are more:
• 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.
