About Dance at BMS
Dance at BMS encourages children to express the joy of movement with some live music in a fun and safe environment. BMS cares about our dancers and created a home away from home! The faculty provides face-to-face contact with parents and encourages continuous communication. Parents will receive an overview of the annual curriculum to ensure quality and awareness of the dancers’ education. Additionally, BMS offers detailed assessments twice a year for each dancer that includes parent observation weeks to observe the dancers during class. This will showcase the progress of the class and how much the dancers have grown.
Wide range of dance Styles
Diversity is important at BMS including its curriculum. There are a variety of dance styles offered such as Ballet, Creative Movement, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap Dance, and African Dance for children.
