Rod Serling School of Fine Arts at Binghamton High School
"We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance." ~Japanese proverb
Dance one of the four arts disciplines that are offered at BHS. We have had a curricular dance program and satellite activities since 1994. Students participate in several different ways, depending upon their goals, experience, and needs.
Those who are interested in studying dance during the school day and earning arts credits can take dance classes all four years of their high school career, beginning at Dance I and continuing to the IB level.
Those who are interested in pursuing dance technique and performance beyond the school day can try out for the Dance Team and Dance Company.
Those who are interested in increasing the opportunities for other students to experience dance and belonging to a group of dance lovers, can join the Dance Club.

"Dancing is the loftiest, the most moving, the most beautiful of the arts, because it is not mere translation or abstraction from life; it is life itself." ~Havelock Ellis
I am a dancer. I believe that we learn by practice. Whether it means to learn to dance by practicing dancing or to learn to live by practicing living.... In each it is the performance of a dedicated precise set of acts, physical or intellectual, from which comes shape of achievement, a sense of one's being, a satisfaction of spirit. One becomes in some area an athlete of God.
~Martha Graham, c.1953
