Dance Program

A beginner who wants to explore dance? Someone who wants to build on a previous dance background? The Dance Program at Holy Cross covers a wide range of styles: jazz, modern, ballet. Our courses and tutorials are grounded in an understanding of dance history, as well as technique and composition. The courses fulfill the College's arts requirement; there is no major or minor. 

“I give students tools to find self-expression and creativity.  I want students to feel more comfortable in their own bodies, to have heightened self-esteem, new friends, and a connection and understanding of musicality and movement."

Jimena Bermejo
Director of Dance Program

 

“It’s about letting go of old habits, opening a little window, and knowing there’s a whole world out there to relax in movement.  It’s the moment to think about ‘Dance is bigger than I thought.’”

Kaela San Lee

”I approach both kinesthetic and academic learning with an awareness of diversity and individuality, honing in on important fundamentals that foster self-confidence and a sense of community in the classroom. “
