Dedicated and committed dance students have the opportunity to develop their technical skills to the performance level. They may also create and choreograph dance works. Whether students begin with jazz dance, modern dance, or ballet, they will work with a highly trained professional dancer in the dance studio in the Main Building. For all students, from the novice to the experienced, the focus of the department's instruction is on learning the craft, technique, and discipline of dance.
All Hotchkiss students have opportunities to study music, visual art, theatre, photography, film, related media, and dance, whether as a serious discipline or a new found interest.
