Dance Pathway

The Dance Program at Maine Arts academy focuses on building confidence through movement.  Through sequential  instruction in a variety of genres including Ballet and Jazz, students of all levels discover their abilities, strengthen their technique, improve form, and develop an appreciation of movement and dance.  The Dance Pathway allows students to gain experience collaborating with others while creating and performing original choreography.  Dance Students have the opportunity to perform in recitals throughout the school year, original choreography projects, collaborations, and an annual dance show.  Students may also audition for the Dance Competition Team to advance competitive dance skills.
