    Dance is a universal form of communication and expression. It reflects the values, traditions, thoughts, feelings and imaginings of societies, individuals, and cultures. Dance is the birthright of every human, and a celebration of humanity. People have danced since the dawn of time, and have passed down their dance traditions in both formal and informal ways.
    In LAUSD, we believe that dance is an integral part of our students' education, Pre-K through 12. As such, it is our goal to provide a rigorous, standards-based dance curriculum which allows our students to dance, create dances, observe and appreciate dance, and make connections to, with and through dance to the world around them and - ultimately - to themselves.
