The Philosophy of the SPX Dance Program...

St. Pius X dance courses are designed to teach the fundamentals of ballet and jazz. Students also gain an introduction to modern, contemporary and cultural dance forms. Students further develop their technique through classroom combinations, musical phrasing and choreography (based on level). The curriculum focuses on ballet vocabulary, dance history, critical analysis, choreography, performance, and Pilates. All students perform in the annual Spring Dance Concert and the NOVO Choreography Project.

What we offer...

The St. Pius X Fine Arts Department offers a full-time dance program. Whether a novice or a trained dancer, students may enroll in a dance course to receive elective credit.

  • Dance I (Beginner Level)
  • Dance II (Intermediate Level)
  • Dance III (Advanced Level)
  • SPX Dance Company (Advanced/Pre-Professional Level)
