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.
This year’s 7th and 8th grade dance students explored Latin Dance in traditional and contemporary forms during their DanceWAVE (Working Artist Video Ensemble) Assignment. They learned four Latin Dance styles: Bachata, Cha Cha Cha, Rumba, and Mambo which they filmed in various locations in New York City — from Carl Schurz Park in the Upper East Side to J. Hood Wright Park in Washington Heights to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx.
