Once a Tiger Always a Tiger! I'm excited to return to Roseville HS for the 3rd time! I graduated in 1994, having been a member of Dancin' Feat all 4 years.  I returned from 2002-07 as a dance teacher, and am thrilled to be back, teaching with my friend and colleague, Pilar Steiner.

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT PRESENTATION- This slide show provides an overview of the units of study, possible field trips,  and class expectations for each dance class offered at RHS.  It also provides information on the Nataional Honor Society for Dance Arts, as well as the RHS VAPA Honor Cord.


MAKE UP WORK- If you've missed dance class for any reason, you can regain participation points by writing an essay.  Check with your teacher to see how many essays you need to complete, and when they are due, based on your circumstances.  Please note that these essays can only replace an in class skill test with teacher permission under extenuating circumstances.  You will almost always need to make up a skill test in ROAR within 2 weeks of missing it.  THIS MAKE UP WORK IS NOT AVAILABLE TO REPLACE ANY PART OF YOUR FINAL.


DANCE SHOW REVIEW- All Dance 1 students must see a live dance show and write a review on it.  Reviews are due witin one week of the show you saw, or no later than the day BEFORE Finals. Follow the link to find instructions on how to write your review. Additional reviews from dance students in any level will be applied towards NHSDA Membership!
