McKinney ISD offers four different levels of dance instruction at the high school level.
Dance I provides students with the fundamental skills and knowledge of dance as an art form and lifetime activity.
Dance II progresses into more complex dance movements in such forms as modern dance, folk/ethnic dance, jazz and/or tap. Students are also provided with opportunities to apply imagery concepts to groups and individuals projects associated with all types of dance and artistic forms.
Dance III continues with more advanced concepts and explores choreography and manipulation of body, space, force, and time. Improvisation, informal presentations and critiquing are also explored.
Dance IV focuses on advanced training in classical dance forms, choreography, production, performance, and dance-related careers.
