St. Margaret's offers a full range of dance classes for students in Early Childhood School through the grade 12. Students in the Early Childhood School and Lower School may enroll in the St. Margaret's Dance Conservatory, where they take age-appropriate classes in ballet, hip hop and tap, after school. Middle and Upper School students may take dance to fulfill both their P.E. and their Fine Arts Credits as part of their regular school day. In the Upper School there are two levels of dance offered. Students in these classes study and perform in a variety of genres including ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, and hip-hop technique. Dance classes also include yoga and Pilates-based conditioning to increase flexibility and strength. Instruction focuses on correct postural alignment, coordination, rhythmic patterns, fundamental dance positions, dance history and terminology. These courses emphasize essential life skills such as concentration, self-discipline, precision, goal-setting, confidence-building, self-expression, teamwork, effective communication and responsibility. The Dance Program produces two All-School Dance Concerts each year, which showcase both faculty and student choreography. Students are also introduced to the art of choreography and encouraged to creatively express themselves through guided exercises and group projects.
