Student's Corner


The dance education curriculum recognizes that all students have the right to an arts education as a fundamental part of basic education. Dance has been recognized as one of the four fine arts, a core subject in Maryland Public Schools. Dance education enables students to discover their own innate capacity for the communication of ideas, thoughts, and feelings through the medium of dance.

All of the arts provide ways in which people can bring shape and order to their fragmented and rapidly changing world. But dance provides a primary medium for expression involving the total self, dance and the movement that produces it is 'me' and is the most intimate of expressive media. A person's self-concept, their own identity and self-esteem are improved in relation to such use of their body's movement. If we believe that movement plays a crucial role in the developing life of the individual and that all education should foster creativity, body movement as a creative medium in education attains great significance.
