The dance program at the Holmes Center for the Arts is committed to providing quality dance education in a nurturing environment. We focus on correct dance technique, inspiring our students to do their best, and performance expression.  We want each of our students to meet their own goals in dance.  We offer our students various performing opportunities where they can learn, grow and express themselves as dancers.
