Dance

The dance program at CSW inspires students of all skill levels to experience the intellectual, cultural, and empowering aspects of physical expression.

Courses offer students a variety of technical styles, including ballet, jazz, modern, and African dance. We invite both serious dance students and beginners alike to experience the beauty and exhilaration of dance and movement. Beginners will find classes that suit their skill (and inhibition) level, from Beginner's Technique, introducing newcomers to various dance styles, to Movement Improvisation, inviting dancers to move their own way. 

The skilled dance student will find rigorous technique classes that will help them refine movement patterns and alignment, as well as develop strength in their limbs, back, and abdominals. Students are encouraged to explore their own voices and to collaborate with other advanced students in other disciplines—such as visual arts or music—to create original choreography. And, we offer many performance opportunities for students to showcase their work.
