Through dance education, students will come to know and understand how to control their bodies, and how to explore the infinite possibilities of movement in order to use their bodies as an instrument of expression and communication.  Students will learn how to improvise, create, and perform dances based on concepts learned in class as well as those inspired by their own feelings and ideas.
