Dance at Madeira is a highlight of the performing arts program, because classes are taught by professional dancers who perform and teach at the highest levels on the East Coast and internationally.
Madeira offers dance classes as an athletic D block activity in ballet, modern, jazz, hiphop, Afro-fision and more. All classes are taught by sought after dance professionals in the D.C. metro area. Our dancers master various styles including tap, jazz, modern, ballet, hip hip and different cultural forms of dance. For more on the classes offered this year, click through to the Fine Arts Curriculum. For information on this year’s Winter Musical, which will feature Madeira dancers performing original choreography, see the Drama and Theatre page.
Dancers can audition to participate in more advanced level training and performance opportunities with Madeira Select. This program allows students to train, perform, and attend master classes with top professionals and to grow as dance artists. Highest-level dancers can be invited to participate in the CityDance Conservatory program.
