English Theatre Arts Performing Company
Dancers will grow in technical ability, performance quality, and community awareness through being a part of the English Theatre Arts Performing Company. Technical ability will be enhanced through mandatory ballet and jazz technique classes. Performance quality will grow through several performance opportunities such as competing in several local competitions throughout the year. Dancers will also have the opportunity to attend conventions, different workshops, and master classes. Community awareness will be achieved through participation in service projects, dancing in nursing homes or underprivileged schools, and local festivals such as Mauldin and Simpsonville Parade. Our goal is to take the passion of dance of our students and transform a unique, gifted, and well-rounded artist.
