"To dance is to be out of yourself. Larger, more beautiful, more powerful. This is power, it is glory on earth and it is yours for the taking." - Agnes De Mille
Learn the art of movement through course work in dance. Beginning and intermediate dancers will develop their knowledge and techniques of modern dance, ballet or jazz dance through instructional direction from Faculty Dancers. The Dance Program works to cultivate each student's creative, performance, and voice in dance. Students will be exposed to diverse practical approaches to dance techniques and development.
TCC offers a wide range of dance classes for both beginners and more serious dance students. Technique offerings include Ballet I and Ballet II, Contemporary I and II, and Jazz I. For a more theoretical study of dance, classes, such as Dance History and Dance Composition can be chosen.
TCC dance students include novices, future dance majors, students who want to "brush up" on their dance technique, as well as individuals who are interested in the health benefits of a movement experience. Enrollment in a TCC dance class can lead to performance opportunities within the community or can simply enrich a student's educational plan.
Students participating in Contemporary Dance I or II, Ballet I or II, or Beginning Jazz course will showcase their talents and skills learned through scheduled performances at TCC and in the community.
