Dance

Our dancers are given the opportunity to grow as artists through challenging technique classes and repertory by renowned choreographers, all in an environment that encourages collaboration, creation, and fostering an appreciation for the arts.

The mission of the Oxbridge Academy Dance Department is to promote a desire for life-long learning in the field of dance. Students will develop an understanding of, and appreciation for, dance as an art form. We will provide students a personalized learning environment that fosters meaningful experiences in performance and non-performance areas of dance through an environment of collaborative learning, critical thinking, and professional partnerships. We will also develop future leaders in the field of dance arts education and performance. Opportunities for solo work, attending competitions to earn a Varsity letter, and working with guest teachers and choreographers are available in the upper-level classes.
