Welcome to Lakeshore High School's
Countywide Dance Program!

The mission of our dance program is to help students become confident, disciplined, respectful, self-loving young adults, and to empower them to recognize and reach their utmost potential. Our classroom environment is both nurturing and demanding; a home where there is room for love and growth with the highest expectations for effort, discipline, and respect. Students will be assisted in recognizing their talents and guided through their obstacles so that they may reach their fullest potential.

-Mrs. Graziano, Artistic Director

In the Course of a Year...

Throughout the school year we base our primary focus on modern dance technique, but we also spend time learning techniques of jazz and ballet. Students will learn about elements of composition and are offered opportunities throughout the year to choreograph their own works. Students that audition their ideas for choreography have the chance to feature their work in our Winter or Spring Dance Concert. Outside of learning student choreography, BCD members also learn repertoire from Mrs. Graziano and outside professionals. Throughout the years our students have worked with distinguished dance professionals such as Nan Giordano, Giordano Dance Chicago, Randy Duncan, Jon Lehrer, LehrerDance, Frank Chavez, Laurie Eisenhower and, Eisenhower Dance Ensemble,  Mari Jo Irbe, Sarita Smith Childs, Winifred Haun, Lisa Catrett-Belrose, Jennifer Archibald,  Autumn Eckman, Taryn Kaschock Russell, Hubbard Street 2, Adam Houston, Cesar Salinas.
