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.
Creativity and self-expression are at the core of a Dalton education. MS dance students in 7th and 8th grade study Sofa, a traditional warrior rhythm from Guinea, West Africa, which thrives in contemporary American Hip-Hop dance and music.
