Artistic Director’s Message
St. Paul’s School for Girls and The Dance Conservatory at The St. Paul’s Schools welcome you and your family. We appreciate your enthusiasm and support for this program, and we look forward to working cooperatively with you to provide our children the most effective artistic and academic environment possible.
The Dance Conservatory has been designed to identify, nurture, develop, and train the community's children in the art of dance. We allow students the opportunity to develop their artistic potential offering training at various levels of pre-collegiate, pre-professional, and the joy of learning dance to forever be a dance enthusiast.
Dance education is an important mode of learning. The process of learning to dance also teaches discipline, self-awareness, defines limitations, enhances musical aptitude and powers of concentration and focus. Both the mind and body are enriched through the willingness to know and the act of learning how to know. Throughout the year we will witness this process together, as each child develops new self-esteem and pride in his or her abilities.
