The BCPS Dance Pre-K-12 Curriculum recognizes that all students have the right to an arts education (dance, theatre, music, and visual arts) as a fundamental part of basic education. The goals and indicators of the curriculum are arranged sequentially, Pre-K-12, to include creative work, dance forms and techniques, dance history, performance and production, aesthetics, and criticism. Infused in the study of dance is the recognition and realization that dance contributes to a healthy lifestyle, as well as the development of individual and social skills. The dance curriculum also provides unique opportunities for cross-curricular connections, an inherent benefit of studying dance.
