Dance is movement, visually organized in space and time. A dancer’s skills and techniques are often based on tradition and passed down from one generation to the next. Nonetheless, dance is in a constant state of self-definition. Dancers, choreographers and all those involved in studying and performing dance take part in defining and reinterpreting the art form.
Dance education in Clear Creek ISD provides all students with the opportunity to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of dance as an art form. Students learn and refine dance skills and techniques in class and in performance, study the historical and cultural significance of dance and its evolution as an art form and evaluate personal work and the work of others.
At Clear Brook all Dance I classes study ballet, jazz, modern, hip hop, tap, cultural dance, social dance and basic choreography, as well as group spacial relationships. Our Dance II, III and IV students continue their study of these genres, completing a more in-depth study of movement vocabulary and choreography.
