Dance is a performance art form that is primarily designed to be performed in groups. Because group dance is the main type of performance, dance is taught primarily in a group class setting.
Group classes provide students with the opportunity to work with other dancers, with different abilities, knowledge, and skill sets. It teaches team work, timing, rhythm, formations, and many skills that are needed to perform with a dance group. It also provides an environment for students to challenge themselves to improve and to always strive for their best. The skills attained during group dance classes is transferable to many other aspects of a students life as they progress in school, college and career.
Group classes allow for dancers to collaborate together to learn new skills and encourage each other to work hard to attain a goal. This kind of environment builds friendships and bonds that last a lifetime!
