Dance is an important art form for adolescents, growing into their bodies and vision of the world. By emphasizing the poetic and symbolic aspects of the body, dance encourages students to explore reality through their senses. It also provides them with an opportunity to express their emotions, ideas, aspirations, dreams and personal world-view as they create, perform and appreciate dances.
