Dance

SCAA offers a comprehensive study of dance in a variety of mediums. Study begins with an emphasis in creativity and the establishment of a strong foundation in the specific dance style. The progression of study allows each student to develop strength, musicality, coordination and advanced level dance technique. Classes (exceptions noted) culminate with recitals in May. Placements in proceeding levels are by teacher recommendation or audition.

Students pay a single Dance Performance Fee ($45) in addition to the class tuition(s). There are no costume fees collected during the  year. Costumes are included in the class tuition. Be sure to check the SCAA 2017 Dance Dress Code
