Since January 2007, the Schauer School of Arts has offered dance instruction that focuses on building students’ abilities through the development of a strong technical foundation. Students as early as three years old are introduced to dance through Creative Movement.  As they grow, dancers build on these fundamentals with specific techniques offered in Pre-Ballet, Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Modern, Contemporary, Funk, Jazz and Irish.

Classes are held annually and are split into Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer sessions.  The annual Leaps & Bounds showcase is held each May in the Ruth A. Knoll Theater. Occasionally, students have the opportunity to take masterclasses and even perform with visiting companies that are part of the Schauer Art Center’s professional performing arts series.  Offerings vary by semester, view the current class schedule.
