Through the School Outreach Program Steamboat Dance Theatre encourages youth to explore dance, while nurturing community values and arts education.
Starting in 2014 Steamboat Dance Theatre has been involved in Steamboat Springs High School Community Enrichment as part of the high school's Homecoming Spirit Week.
Dance Theatre has offered such classes to the local high school students as:
Jazz, African Fusion, Hoop, Dance Improvisation, Choreography, Dance on Film.
This year we look forward to continuing this partnership with the high school and diversifying the available techniques and genre's of dance.
