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 taking one dance class pay a single Dance Performance Fee ($45) in addition to the class tuition. Students taking two or more dance classes pay a single Dance Performance Fee ($70) in addition to the class tuition. There are no costume fees collected during the  year. Be sure to check the SCAA 2019 Dance Dress Code
