Student in the Spotlight

The Arlington Heights Dance Instructors nominate one student per session for Student in the Spotlight recognition. Nominations are based on dedication, hard work, and positivity. Once all nominations are in we choose one student at random to be honored with the title Student in the Spotlight. A photo and biography of that student will be displayed in the bulletin boards at all three dance studio locations as well as on the AHPD dance webpage. Those students who were nominated but not chosen will also receive recognition, their names will be listed alongside the Student in the Spotlight in all three bulletin boards and on the AHPD dance webpage.

2015 Fall Student in the Spotlight: Taylor Kalata

Our Philosophy

The Park District’s dance program philosophy is to provide skill-building techniques though the various dance forms offered and provide equal attention to learning these dance skills in a fun and creative atmosphere for all participants involved.
We offer a variety of Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Lyrical, and Hip Hop classes for dancers 2½ years to Adults. We hope our program will bring self confidence and poise that will be carried throughout all aspects of the life of the dancer.

Arlington Heights Park District Dance Company

We would like to invite you to Company Auditions. The Park District Dance Company focuses on improving technique and strengthening dance skills. Students will learn more advanced skills and broaden their knowledge of dance styles and terms.
