The Dance program focuses on developing the technique, creativity, and artistry essential for successful dance expression. The curriculum is based on ballet and modern dance with all technique classes accompanied by a professional musician. Theory includes the study of anatomy, injury prevention, nutrition, career choices, dance history and criticism.

Student choreography is developed through improvisation and composition studies. All students have the opportunity to perform their own creations as well as that of staff and guest choreographers in both informal and formal stage settings. There are two dance repertoire companies: Dance Infusion for grade 9 and 10 students and Dance Access for grade 11 and 12. Both companies are contemporary/jazz based courses for credit and rehearse after school. They perform frequently in elementary schools as part of the Outreach Program as well as in our Spring Showcase and Dance Highlights performances in the Markham Theatre.
