Department of Dance
We now have three full classes of dance every day at Highland, with a total of 72 students signed up for the year. Residencies with local dance companies are an integral part of our program.
The International Baccalaureate program at Highland Park Senior High is one of only three programs in Minnesota that include an IB dance program, started by Charlotte Landreau, IB Diploma Coordinator.
