About the CAS Dance Department
The Baldwin Wallace Community Arts School Dance Department provides dancers a solid technical foundation, while encouraging a passion for the arts, positive self-expression, and the confidence to be successful. Our professionally trained dance faculty focus on the holistic development of each dancer in an environment that focuses on creativity, personal achievement, discipline, dedication, teamwork, friendship, kindness, and respect. Our goal is to develop not only the best dancers, but individuals with the skills needed to be successful in the future.
We train our dancers on and beyond the dance floor so that each artist builds a strong body and a healthy, confident mindset. Our dancers are educated in anatomy and kinesiology, as well as injury prevention to help keep them dancing for years to come.
Dance students are taught the ability to make creative choices, leading to increased confidence, independence, and critical thinking skills. Dancing gives students an outlet for their emotions and promotes a positive way for students to express their feelings, thoughts, and ideas.
Dancers are trained in movement in a way that promotes coordination, motor skills, flexibility, strength, and stamina. This knowledge leads to increased physical fitness, exercise habits, and a long-term health lifestyle.
