Students learn more about dance history, anatomy, nutrition, and discipline as they attend classes, workshops, and co-curricular activities. In addition to taking classes designed to increase strength, flexibility, and fluidity of movement, students participate in performance based classes to increase poise, confidence, and artistic skills .
