The Dance Program at FSHA

While dancing together we find ways to connect on stage, whether that be through eye contact, breathing together, or partnering. While creating movement we seek processes that develop original content, or connect us to universal feelings or moods.

We offer four levels of dance. In all classes, we touch upon various dance techniques, including contemporary concert dance, ballet, hip-hop, jazz and yoga/pilates, as well as composition and choreography. Our dance companies, which meet outside of the school day and are audition-based, perform in the annual Dance Concert, during some prayer services and other school-related events throughout the year. Company auditions are held every May and are open to incoming freshmen.

The annual Dance Concert is a major event across the entire school, with approximately 25 percent of the student body participating. Recent productions have paid tribute to literature, identity, different genres in the sciences, film, religion, and language.
