Dance is the act of rhythmically moving the body and feet. This is usually done to music, and the dancer often follows an established pattern of steps. Styles range from Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Modern and Pom. DTMS offers dance technique classes as well as a competition performing group called the Jr. Silver Stars.

Folkloric dance, like the English term “folk dance”, means dances of the people. This type of dance reflects the traditions, cultures and beliefs of people in a particular region. Folkloric dance expresses the life and spirit of a people through its movement and music. Men waving handkerchiefs. Women rhythmically swirling and swishing their skirts at their sides. There are lots of brightly colored costumes. Sometimes the dancers sing and yell out. What is this fantastic performance? It’s folklórico, of course!

DTMS offers folklorico technique classes as well as a competition performing group called Grupo Folklorico Cinco Soles.
