Panther Dance is a full-year recreational dance program. Our major goal is for students to experience the joy of dance, enrich their skills, and learn to appreciate this art. Specialized instructors from the greater Bangkok area teach a range of classes, from beginner to advanced levels. Dancers from Pre-K to Grade 12 participate in weekly ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop and contemporary classes. Skills are highlighted at the end of the school year during an exciting dance production featuring lights, costumes and the unique choreographed dance of each class. (Adults, PK1 and Saturday classes are not performing.)
Registration required for Seasons 1-2 and Seasons 3-4.
Seasons 1-2: The focus is on technique, dance vocabulary and specific dance skills that will be used for the performance in May.
Seasons 3-4: The main goal is preparing the performance using the foundation of previous sessions, students practice choreography, advanced movements, and expression.
