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. Depending on dance level, performance opportunities include NOVO Choreography Project, Christmas Dance Concert, Spring Dance Concert, and the Arts Festival.
