DANCE DEPARTMENT

The Savannah Arts Academy dance department consists of approximately 60 students who are required to take technical training in ballet and modern, plus additional training in the jazz, if interested.  Students round out their total dance experience by engaging in two academic dance courses-- one year of dance history and one year of dance composition.  The dance department traditionally performs in two large productions annually with dance works created by faculty, students and guest artists. 


Choreography is produced both in class and in afternoon rehearsals.  There are also multiple opportunities for performing in venues from the fall Student Choreography Concerts to the large spring musical production, as well as touring local area schools and events.  Each year interested dance students may attend the National High School Dance Festival and have the opportunity to work with local and national guest artists throughout the school year.  Given the relatively small size of our department, students work closely with each other and faculty which allows for a great deal of personal interaction and growth.
