Dance at Oldfields

As part of the curriculum, Oldfields offers classes for beginners, intermediate, and advanced dance students that include the techniques of ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary dance. There are also courses in choreography. 

Students have the opportunity to work with  special guest artists for Master Classes. Here are just some of the notable dancers that have come to campus to  share their knowledge and love of dance:

  • Lloyd Boyd III and Courtney Ross – Dancers of Ailey II
  • Rasta Thomas’ Bad Boys of Dance
  • Le Sole Dance Project – a West African dance troupe
  • Brandon Perry-Russell – former dancer with Dance Theater of Harlem

Many times a year, students have the chance to choreograph and to perform in concerts and assemblies. As is the hallmark of an Oldfields education, every opportunity is made for girls who have little or no dance experience, as well as for those who have special talents and extensive dance training.

All Oldfields dance participants become confident in their newfound physical skills and knowledge. Trips to dance performances in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore are arranged whenever possible to expose our dancers to the greater world of professional dance.
