Dance

Exploring improvisation, composition, and form.

Whether you are an experienced dancer or just starting out, Walker’s offers a variety of classes for every experience level.

Modern, ballet, jazz, and tap are just some of the classes offered including opportunities for master classes and exploration of cultural dance forms. 

Each fall, winter, and spring, students present dance concerts to the entire School community to share their creativity and skill. We also offer two dance companies for high-intermediate and advanced dancers, as well as opportunities for students to explore dance as a co-curricular activity. You’ll be challenged to grow technically and creatively, and will have multiple opportunities to showcase your abilities.
