About Us

 

The IRSC dance program offers a comprehensive 2-year study of dance. Students who are interested in continuing their training at a 4-year institution, teaching in a dance studio, or pursuing careers as professional dancers will find plenty of opportunities to train and perform at IRSC.

Classes in modern dance and ballet make up the core techniques, but students may also study jazz, dance composition and body conditioning. Our emphasis is on performance training and providing opportunities to dance in a variety of venues.

In addition to the core curriculum dance majors work very closely with the theatre program in a conservatory approach to education. Dancers take classes in acting and voice, theatre majors take dance and voice and together they share productions combining their talents.
