Concordia’s APAC dance team began in the fall of 2010. Since it’s foundation, dancers have performed locally and have traveled for APAC Dance Festivals in China, Korea, Japan, and the Philippines. The APAC dance season begins with auditions the first week of the school year. The season ends following the APAC dance festival, which is typically mid-November.
All high school students are welcome to consider joining this creative performance experience.
Dances are fully student created – music, choreography, costumes, lighting, story line.
Concordia has a dance studio with wood sprung flooring and mirrors and barres on two sides of the room.
Practices twice a week after school for 1.5 hours.
