The mission of the  Dance Department at the Boston Arts Academy is to provide a rigorous and comprehensive program of study in dance. The curriculum is designed to provide professional training in dance that prepares students for further studies at post-secondary institutions or careers in dance. In addition to technique and dance styles, students study composition, dance history, healthful living, dance production and technologies. The curriculum is designed to provide students opportunities to develop discipline, technical skills, composition skills as well as modes of expression. It is our mission to challenge students’ creativity and critical thinking, through 21st century skills.
