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, tap, yoga and aerial dance (trapeze and silks). Student choreography is encouraged and nurtured as well.
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.
