Dance at Seton Keough

The Dance Program has its own dedicated space in the new dance studio, which has mirrored walls and a certified sprung dance floor. 

Dance I offers students at all grade levels an introduction to the fundamentals of classical ballet, modern technique, jazz technique, and hip hop. Students will explore and develop basic composition skills, kinesthetic awareness, and the cultural history of each technique.
Dance II provides students the opportunity to continue their dance training and refine technique, artistic expression, and performance skills learned in Dance I. Students will begin exploring choreography through partnering and collaborative projects.
Dance III offers students an additional level to develop technical and artistic skills with an emphasis on choreographic devices.  Students will continue refining technique while creating choreography to include partnering, video, and/or original music. Students will be encouraged to collaborate with students from the Art and/or Music Departments.
Dance Company Class is offered to students with several years of classical training, and already demonstrating a proficient level of dance technique. The instructor will work with students on individual goals, objectives, and portfolios needed for college auditions. Students must audition to be accepted into this course.
