INTRO TO DANCE AND DANCE TECHNIQUE

Students in the Nordhoff Intro to Dance and Dance Technique classes are introduced to hip-hop, contemporary, ballet, tap, jazz, modern, lyrical dance and ethnic dance. In addition, student dancers now have the opportunity to take Choreography, an after school class that helps cultivate student's choreographic skills. Attendance at Nordhoff’s Fall and Spring Dance concerts has grown quickly since the program began in the 2004-05 school year. Nordhoff dance students perform to sold-out, standing room only concerts. Dance concerts showcase a wide variety of work including professional and student choreography.
