DanceWorks has been an integral part of the Nantucket Community School’s programming since 2001. Throughout those years, DanceWorks has offered creative movement, pre ballet, ballet and tap to our island’s children. Mrs. Kelly Corbett joined the Community School team as our DanceWorks Artistic Director in 2010 and has since expanded the disciplines offered to include modern, jazz and lyrical dance. Our Apprentice Program is an additional opportunity for many of our dedicated dancers to serve as assistants, share their talents and expand their repertoire.
Each season the DanceWorks program culminates with a specially choreographed recital where each dance class is able to showcase what they have learned throughout the year.
We are always eager to meet new, gifted instructors who are able to contribute to the DanceWorks experience. Our goal is to create a program that will help our dancers build a strong, basic foundation in technique, and introduce and instill confidence, self-esteem, self-expression and discipline as they discover and develop their commitment to the art of dance.
