The Dance Program is free of charge to all Somerset County students. All students are required to audition for acceptance into the programs. The programs encourage growth in individuality and creativity, which helps students become more culturally aware and sensitive to the arts. Students wishing to continue their education in the Performing Arts are offered the opportunity to visit local colleges, attend productions, as well as meet with speakers, alumni and guest artists. Scholarship opportunities, auditions and local theater notices are posted daily to keep students aware of the great number of resources that are available in this dynamic field.
Just a reminder to anyone who attends our performances that absolutely no one is granted the right to take photos or to video tape our performances.
