West Briar Dance Company
In 2019, the Dance Department established a new dance company comprised of two dance programs: Kinetic Dance Company and the Honey Bears Drill Team. Together, this created one advanced dance program called: The West Briar Dance Company. The focus of this dance company is on dance education as a performing art.
The West Briar Dance Company is an advanced performing arts dance ensemble focusing on the improvement of a variety of dance form techniques, composition skills, with a focus on concert - stage performances skills. Dance Company performs throughout the year at various campus and community events, HISD dance festivals, and competitions. The dance styles vary every year and are chosen by directors to suit the ability and dance technique level of the current company. Previous styles have included: contemporary, ballet, fusion (hip hop), jazz, musical theatre, etc, fostering dance composition (student choreography). Dance Company moves at a faster pace and includes much more advanced technique and movement skills than other beginning/intermediate dance classes offered at West Briar. Ideally, the West Briar Dance Company is looking for students with prior studio experience, and those who don’t necessarily have studio experience but are naturally talented, passionate about dance, and willing to work hard to develop their virtuosity.
