There are many options for students interested in pursuing dance at Newton Country Day. We believe that all students should have the opportunity to develop healthy bodies, communication, teamwork, discipline, expression, grace, and courage through dance. Acting on that belief, all students in the Middle School participate in the dance program and stage two major performances each year. In the Upper School, students may participate in Dance Technique––designed for beginners or those returning to dance––or Dance Collaborative––for those with previously developed dance technique. Advanced senior Dance Collaborative students are encouraged to work collaboratively with faculty to choreograph their own works. Non-curricular opportunities also exist for students interested exploring dance for the first time or developing skills in pointe. The Upper School dance program stages two major productions each year.
