    The Dance Department at Randolph High School is offered to students in grades 9-12 and is full year, 5 credit, elective course. Students are placed into proper levels, (Introductory, Intermediate, or Advanced Dance) based on their previous dance experience and/or approval of the instructor. Randolph Dance Education is designed to introduce students to various styles of dance technique. They will be exposed to  Ballet, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, Improvisation, and Multicultural dance forms throughout the year. In addition to taking class, students will also gain knowledge and aesthetic awareness of Dance in its historical, cultural, and social contexts. They will develop a strong understanding of the choreographic process by continuously crafting their own work through improvisation and in-class movement assignments. This course will allow students to form a valid framework for observing and analyzing dance though media and live performance. Dancers have many opportunities to perform their own work as well as the choreography of their instructor and guest artists. Infused within these various units is the realization and recognition that Dance Education contributes to a healthy lifestyle as well as fostering self confidence and developing great social skills. Dance enables our students to become creative thinkers, leaving these artists to discover new ways to approach problem solving in other areas of academic study. Students will leave open minded, self-assured, and confident to fully engage themselves in the art of Dance as well as in everyday life.

    Incoming Freshmen

     Any student that is interested in taking Dance as a freshman next year is advised to sign up for Introduction to Dance.

     

    If you have many years of Dance experience and feel as though you should be in Intermediate Dance or Advanced Dance then you must attend a placement audition. There are no audition requirements for Introduction to Dance.

     

    Anyone who chooses Intermediate or Advanced Dance on their scheduling sheets must attend a placement audition. (Placement Audition information is attached at the bottom of this page or can be obtained from Mrs. Adriano or the RHS guidance dept.)

     

    If you do not attend an audition you will automatically be placed into Introduction to Dance.

     

     

    High School Students that have already taken Dance with Mrs. Adriano

     Any student that has already taken a dance class with Mrs. Adriano at RHS will be placed into the appropriate level by teacher recommendation. Your placement will be posted on Genesis at the end of February, therefore you do not need to attend a placement audition.

     

    If a student feels that they belong in a different level than is recommended, they can attend one of the placement auditions in March. (Placement Audition information is attached at the bottom of this page or can be obtained from Mrs. Adriano or the RHS guidance dept.)
