  • This performing arts class is for students who have had multiple years of dance training and have auditioned and been found to be at the Intermediate/Advanced level. Dancers will explore an advanced-intermediate level study of jazz , lyrical, and contemporary dance technique with focus on the fine tuning of physical and performing skills. Due to Junior Conservatory Dance classes being performance-based, participation and attendance to daily classes, technical rehearsals, tech week, and performance dates for Conservatory Christmas Chapel and DanceScapes are mandatory.
