    Dance

     

    The Enloe Arts Magnet High School’s Dance Department offers students the opportunity to explore and excel in dance through classes, clubs and performance opportunities. We challenge students to learn and create dance in original expressive forms. Students and teachers work together in order to develop meaningful collaborations and the process of creating art is emphasized more than the product or outcome. Enloe dance stresses the development of the well rounded dance artist by educating the students in anatomy, world dance, dance history, choreography, improvisation, various dance techniques, etc… We try to meet the needs of all students and try to include the beginning dance student to those who want to make dance their life’s passion, pathway and commitment.

    If the student is unable to make the placement class on the respective date then the student needs to attend the class on the date that best fits their schedule. Students MUST attend a placement class to be considered for an honors level dance class. If students cannot attend a placement class, it is required to contact the EHS Dance Faculty via email to schedule an alternate plan.

     

    Students may attend the placement classes that best suit their interests. Students may attend all the placement classes to decide which style they desire to study. Students will need to inform the faculty regarding which dance discipline is their #1 choice by March 24, 2020 @5pm.
