STUDENT ENRICHMENT


Boundless Dance Academy offers the following opportunities for student enrichment:

Conventions

  • Multiple dance conventions visit our region annually. Students and staff are encouraged to attend at least 1 convention per year. At these conventions, master dance instructors from around the world teach classes in various genres of dance. It is an excellent opportunity for students to grow in their dance knowledge and experience. It is also an opportunity for the BDA staff to assemble with other studio owners and dance instructors – they can exchange information and ideas about current teaching methods and the dance industry at large. Conventions are inspiring and encouraging for both students and staff alike.
  • Periodically throughout the year, master classes will be offered for students. BDA will commission well known dancers and choreographers from around the country to come “in-house” and offer a master class session. Master classes are a wonderful way for students to be introduced to other styles of dance from around the world, from incredibly talented guest artists.
  • BDA students are encouraged to participate in BDA field trips throughout the year. These trips provide students with an opportunity to see local, national, and international dancers performing in their own community. Supporting fellow dancers is important and being an audience member at a professional dance concert is a wonderful way for BDA students to be inspired in their art form.
  • Each year during National Dance Week (in April) BDA will sponsor special activities to show support for dance. During this week of classes, students will be asked to bring a friend to dance class. The entire week is a celebration of dance!
  • Once per quarter, BDA will host a Kids’ Night Out event. These events are held on Friday evenings from approximately 6:30-8:30 p.m. For a nominal flat fee, students are invited to eat snacks, dance, and play games. This is an opportunity for students to have fun in a safe environment while developing lasting friendships.
  • Dance related books, magazines, and DVDs are available for checkout from the BDA office. Students of all ages will find information about the art of dance, famous dancers, and health/nutrition. Students enjoy having these resources readily available for book reports and school research projects. This “library” is unique to BDA and is not something that is typically offered in dance studios.
