High School Performance
Students learn the structure of movement through classical traditions of dance that span into abstract styles of choreography; gearing towards student's individual understanding of the world around them. Dance becomes an important aspect of learning when it comes to the physical, intellectual and artistic benefits.
Dance Students and Arts Integrated Concepts
The purpose of training students traditionally is to lay the groundwork for the fundamental dance practices and expand their understanding into critical concepts that help guide artistic expression of movement. Not only is dance artistic but it can trigger the student's intellect; which incorporates ways of communicating social, political and spiritual concepts-abstractly. Students learn physical discipline through dance by connecting movement of the body more efficiently in mental alignment with the brain.
The arts are interconnected: the integration with other fine, visual, and performing arts is so tightly knit that a student who produces original music can link their music with dance choreography for a live performance or filmed experimental piece through the Urban Film School. A student performance or dance can even inspire fine arts students in expressing dance movement through paint or photography.
A student who is poetically strong can develop a piece expressed through interpretive word and movement.
A student who has a fascination with profound historical events or a political stance can choreograph a movement through dance to artistically open minds to think and question contemporary social issues.
A student who is scientifically linked to the interest of science and physics has a high percentage in understanding how the significance in body placement and energy builds stronger dance abilities.
