ABOUT THE SANGRE DE CRISTO SCHOOL OF DANCE

At the Sangre de Cristo School of Dance, we maintain a commitment to students and their families to provide: 

  • Professional instruction at affordable rates

  • Class curriculum that is developmentally appropriate, progressive, and sequential in each genre taught

  • Attention to the total development of each student regardless of their future aspirations as a dancer or latent abilities

  • Professional training to students with the desire to pursue a performing career

  • Respect for the uniqueness of the individual student so that the dance program is directed toward being a positive experience for age appropriate learning pursued in a safe environment free from embarrassment or disparagement, abusive language, intimidation, unhealthy competition, or other negative stressors

  • Use of current pedagogical knowledge, methods, and techniques known through dance medicine, scientific research, and literature to ensure safe practices

The School of Dance offers a wide variety of classes, incluind and in addition to: 

  • Classes offered during spring, summer, and fall semesters
