Welcome to the Dance Department of WSFCS!
The k-12 progression of dance in the Winston-Salem Forsyth County Schools strives to help students perceive and communicate who they are through choreography and contemporary dance technique. Dance helps students develop the self esteem, self-discipline, cooperation, and self motivation for success in life. Students discover through experience their artistic abilities and motivations.
The WS/FCS Dance Department is comprised of 20 teachers, two elementary schools, two middle schools, and eleven high schools. Dance in the primary grades focus on exploration and integration of core subjects. At the high school level dance is offered as a PE alternative and as an honors arts elective. Students may receive multiple honors credits for dance class. Dance at the high school level focuses on technique, performance, and choreography.
All-County Dance and Student Choreography Showcase are the two events that the dance department puts on every year. In addition, each school produces at least two concert performances each year.
