Dance at Mercersburg Academy provides students with the opportunity to acquire proficiency in dance regardless of previous training and background. Performance Group Activity content includes weekly classes in modern, ballet, pointe, jazz, and tap and culminates in two mainstage concerts in the fall and spring. Student choreography is encouraged and nurtured and is featured in a winter student showcase each year. 

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 students and orphans as a means of self-expression, linking dance to self-esteem. Dance is a powerful form of self-expression and a common language between all cultures.

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