SCPA Dance
The Dance Department of the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts is dedicated to providing a broad education that challenges the students artistically, intellectually and physically and to prepare qualified students for college, conservatory and professional careers in dance and related professions.
The department develops artistic and creative potential through a sequentially developed curriculum in both technical and theoretical dance courses. Students acquire the basic principles of choreography and a broader understanding of other arts forms and their relationship to dance. Students are provided with numerous performance opportunities including community involvement.
