Dance is a rigorous and beautiful art form that engages the use of the whole self, connecting mind, body, and heart. It is used in many settings, from physical fitness to self-exploration and expression. Students work from a simplistic understanding of the body's natural alignment to its widespread ability across different styles of dance. Dance builds upon strong technical foundations that enable dancers to move across the floor into more complicated choreographed works.

Students are able to take a variety of classes at all levels in ballet, contemporary, pointe, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre dance, and tap, as well as strength and flexibility. Classes are held in the spacious Mary Johnson Dance Studio, complete with a mirrored wall and spring-loaded floor. Students perform at an end-of-year showcase and in two musical productions each year.
