Nearly 180 students participate in the AMPA Dance program each year which features ballet, jazz, contemporary and hip-hop styles. Under the direction of Latrece Douglas, students are placed in levels through audition at the beginning of each academic year. As part of the AMPA concert season, Dance showcases are held in the Fall and Spring. In addition to individual recognition, Dancers from AMPA have been invited to perform at numerous entertainment venues and events including most recently the Academy Awards broadcast, the Super Bowl half-time show with Beyonce, and at the Special Olympics with Stevie Wonder. The award-winning Hamilton High School Dance Team is an alternate dance experience which participates in numerous city-wide competitions annually.
