A World of Movement: IB Dance

Ready to pirouette into something extraordinary? Welcome to the dance program at Shanghai American School Pudong. We pride ourselves not just on our diverse selection of dance classes, but also on being the only school to offer IB dance in Shanghai.

This year, we turned APAC into a global dance tour. In order for our students and visiting dance teams to experience an even higher level of dance education, we brought in world artists focusing on contemporary, hip-hop, Chinese, and jazz dance. These artists gave workshops for students throughout APAC, learning new skills and techniques they could directly implement in their final dance performance. Imagine learning contemporary dance from a former Paris Opera Ballet dancer. Sounds too good to be true? Well, buckle your dance shoes, because it happened right here.

So, are you ready to step onto our dance floor, where the magic happens and the ordinary becomes extraordinary? Take a closer look into the world of dance at SAS:

AP or IB? At SAS it’s possible to do both

Shanghai American School embodies a unique educational experience. Our high school prides itself on offering a wide variety of choices for students, whether it be subject courses, sports, or after-school activities. We’re one of few schools in Shanghai that offer both the Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma programs. That means high schoolers can do either the AP Capstone Diploma or the IB Diploma Program. If they don’t wish to do either diploma program, they can do a combination of AP and IB courses.
