Ascension Dance Company
Ms. Katelyn Staszkow, Room 711
Purpose: To give dedicated dancers, who demonstrate extra effort and talent, the opportunity to develop as a performer and choreographer.
Ascension is the extra-curricular dance team offered through audition placement and Ascension dancers are also members of Dance Production. Ascension Dance Company rehearses four-five days a week after school to produce choreography for performances on campus and are ambassadors for the school dance program. Ascension members participate in field trips, performances off campus and travel for master classes.
Ascension Dance Company consists of the most elite dancers from Skyline High School. Dancers are placed through an audition process that takes place previous to the working school year. Students focus on dance production by composing choreographic works and facilitating the behind-the-scenes work for stage performance production.
Company members serve as the dance club for Skyline High School and facilitate monthly meetings to address funding, spending and other dance related issues. Dancers explore more complex skills in modern/contemporary, ballet and jazz while enhancing artistic expression. They are given many performance opportunities serving the school and community.
