Community School Dance
Dance has been an integral part of the Colburn School’s offerings since the school’s inception in 1950. Community School Dance classes are offered in ballet, tap, musical theater dance, modern dance, creative dance, jazz dance, special technique classes for boys, and an extensive curriculum for advanced level teens. All levels and disciplines emphasize a solid grasp of fundamental dance techniques; strong technical, creative, and performance skills; and an understanding of the traditions and history behind each style of dance. Our world-class faculty are selected for their ability to impart dance and movement theory, practice, and history to the training of dancers in a broad range of levels and styles, helping each dancer excel to their highest possible level of excellence and enjoyment.
Community School Dance classes are organized by level and age, and with the exception of certain advanced performing groups, no audition is necessary. Students in our classes demonstrate their technical skills by performing choreographed dances in a dance recital at the end of each spring semester, and numerous other performance opportunities are provided to many of our classes throughout the year.
