Mater Dei Dance Team
The Dance Team at Mater Dei High School is comprised of elite dancers who maintain a deep passion for the art of dance, as well as the competitive sport of dance teams. The program focuses on developing students as both devoted artists and accomplished individuals by fostering the core components of discipline, teamwork, technical mastery, and artistic expression. Students gain insight into the technical and artistic demands of Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Musical Theatre, Hip Hop, and Modern Dance styles while representing Mater Dei High School at regional and national competitions throughout Southern California.
The program is supplemented with unique core elements such as injury prevention for dancers, professional development in dance, dance psychology, body conditioning, choreography, and dance history. The program also boasts it's own chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts, which honors committed student-artists with scholarship and award opportunities.
