5,6,7,8 DANCE

Dance is an art form characterized by the human body as a vehicle of expression.

Dance has been described as "an exciting and vibrant art which can be used in the educational setting to assist the growth of the student and to unify the physical, mental, and emotional aspects of the human being." Dance is immediately accessible for most people; no special equipment is needed, just the ability to move.

Dance education provides opportunities for the development of:

  • Critical thinking and analytical skills
  • Self-expression and self-esteem
  • Organization and problem solving
  • Cultural literacy
  • Communicating emotions through movement.
At UPAC, all of our students benefit from these opportunities that our dance program provides. UPAC students flourish in the environment we have created which is filled with quality leadership, professional instruction and caring individuals.
