Dance Program Overview
 
Cardinal Carter Academy for the Arts offers a highly enriched dance program for students in grades 7-12. As a foundation students are trained in both ballet and modern techniques. Dance performance is an integral part of the curriculum and students are given numerous opportunities to perform. In addition, students learn the aspects of dance theory and composition and begin to choreograph works of their own. Through their work in our professional theatre, as well as, exposure to professional dance artists; students get a taste of work in the real dance world. 
The Dance faculty has extensive dance experience and they are able to help each dancer grow both technically and artistically. A new component to the arts curriculum at Cardinal Carter is to expose students to all of the arts areas.
