Dance

Seton Catholic Preparatory offers students three levels of dance through its Dance Program: Dance 1, Dance 2 and Company. All dance courses explore many different styles in our fully-equipped dance studio from Contemporary and Broadway style, to Jazz, Lyrical/Ballet and Hip Hop. Dance 1 and Dance 2 performance opportunities include Seton Fine Arts Night shows throughout the school year. Company Dance performance opportunities include Seton Fine Arts Nights, school pep assemblies and the High School Dance Festival. Dance classes are throughout the year in which students will receive a full credit in Fine Arts or PE.
