"Our biological rhythms are the symphony of the cosmos, music embedded deep within us to which we dance, even when we can't name the tune."
Dance at Aspen Academy fosters a love of learning and growing as a creative artist. Students are exposed to a myriad of dance styles throughout the year leaving them with a broad understanding of the art. Our goal is to develop an appreciation for the performing arts, awaken and enrich students' creative artistry, build their self-confidence, develop and sharpen their kinesthetic intelligence, build strength, balance, grace and flexibility, and expose the students to historical and cultural facets of dance.
Dance increases students' flexibility, rhythm, artistry, coordination, and creativity. Body awareness and control, physical development, sequential thinking skills, musical awareness, self-confidence, creative expression and relationship building are consistently emphasized.
