About Life Itself
Andover Dance celebrates dancers as movers, creators, and scholars. The program is designed to educate students and the extended community to the concept of dance as a language, exploring movement as a form of communication and expression fundamental to all cultures. Dance classes are offered through academic, athletic, and extra-curricular offerings. Current class offerings include contemporary, ballet, modern, jazz, improvisation, choreographic elements, and dance on camera. Our program prepares students to enter college dance programs or conservatories, while equally serving those who wish to take dance as a recreational activity.
The Academy’s primary performance ensemble, Andover Dance Group, comprises the most dedicated and experienced dancers. Additionally, student-run groups focus on hip-hop, tap, jazz, Afro-Fusion, and Asian dance forms. Numerous performance opportunities featuring faculty and student choreography are provided each term. Andover Dance has also performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, National Arts Festival in South Africa, National High School Dance Festival, and the 92nd St Y in NYC.
