SunDance
After-School Program

SunDance teachers, Ms. Dawn Holmes and Ms. Angel Joy have loved working with students in their After-School Dance Program for over 10 years! The program has over 100 students in grades K-8, a mini-performance group known as CREW, a preschool class, and an adult group.  

There are 2 after-school dance seasons a year, each that end with a performance (Christmas and Spring) at Highline Performing Arts Center (401 S 152nd St., Burien, WA  98148).
