The true purpose of arts education is not necessarily to create more professional dancers or artists. It’s to create more complete human beings who are critical thinkers, who have curious minds and lead their own lives. To develop young peoples’ understanding of Dance and Movement as a lens through which to view the world in order to understand the culture and value of others.
Through Dance, our students will develop their understanding of the processes of creation and collaboration as a means to express their own thoughts and feelings of the world around them. They will learn to look below the surface of a performance to what drives and inspires the artist to create, in order to inform their own dance practise. They will be guided through a journey to become more complete practitioners and people.
