The Dalton Dance program immerses students in the process of dance,
both as a physical discipline and as a creative and performing art. Our classes are designed to attract not only dancers and dance aficionados, but also athletes wanting to move with greater ease and efficiency and actors desiring more expressive movement qualities. We aim to educate, to inspire, and to create both movers and viewers.
Last Spring our Grades 7 & 8 dance students created "Promenade" a dance film inspired by the modern dance classic "Esplanade" by Paul Taylor. Students choreographed and performed their version of this exuberant dance, under the guidance of Dalton dance faculty Joanna Brotman and Blake Pearson, with guest filmmaker Greg Keras.
