Middle School Dance and Dance 1 have subject-based projects such as "Dance and Society" and "Dance through the Decades". Choreography is introduced. Dance 2 and 3 have more involved projects such as "Dance Forms and Their Evolution" and "Dance and Stagecraft", as well as choreographing, staging, and rehearsing original pieces.
