The Knight Fine Arts Center (KFAC) is located in the heart of campus and is home to the arts and dramatic performances. KFAC houses a full stage, classrooms, offices, and studios for dance, art, photography and sculpture. The Wang Innovation Center (WIC) is the most recent addition to KFAC's creative spaces. You'll even find a gallery space, The Moos Gallery, which rotates exhibits from the Reserve community and visiting artists! Recently, the KFAC stage saw the bi-annual dance performance and is currently featuring a unique theater performance.
Dance is one of the many opportunities offered to students to fulfill their Fine & Performing Arts credits. Never danced? No problem, take our entry class! You've been dancing for years? No problem, we have Honors Dance for you!
Dance/Honors Dance Course Description: Dance is a performance art that incorporates the mind and body—it takes discipline, dedication and hard work. This course is for all levels and new students can audition for Honors Dance. Over the course of the year, students will focus on technique and building a strong foundation for the craft. The learning, understanding, and practice of dance vocabulary is also stressed. Educational dance such as kinesiology, history, composition and how to analyze/critique will also be covered. Students will be given the opportunity to work on their technique in the areas of ballet, modern, jazz and hip hop—there may also be opportunities to experience other forms such as tap, contemporary and pointe (Honors). Students participate in two performances at the end of the first and second semesters. Follow WRA's dance instagram account!
