Dance at Mercersburg Academy provides students with the opportunity to acquire proficiency in dance regardless of previous training and background.

Students may choose between Introduction to Dance, Dance Composition I, II and/or III, ballet technique, pointe, modern dance, jazz dance, or hip-hop in order to fulfill their arts graduation requirement.

Dance has also been included in our service trips abroad, including to South Africa, Swaziland, India, and Peru, where we perform and teach dance to children as a means of self-expression, linking dance to self-esteem. Dance is a powerful form of communication and a common language among all cultures.

Dance Studios

The dance program utilizes the Reeder Dance Studio and the Dee Dance Studio, located on the lower level of the Burgin Center for the Arts.
