My daughter, Ema, has been dancing since she could walk. She is currently in grade 6 but is EXTREMELY frustrated that once she gets to high school she won't be able to take Dance as a high school credit in The Arts. While she is hoping to audition and be accepted into the Musical Theatre program at Woodstock Collegiate Institute (WCI) in Woodstock, her absolute passion is dance. She also wants to carry on with Dance past high school and go to a university which has a Dance program. She ultimately wants to become a choreographer and/or dance studio owner/teacher. Currently, in order for her to take Dance as a high school credit, she would need to attend a high school outside of Woodstock (i.e., South S.S. in London, ON). There are very few high schools within our board that offer Dance as a credit. She is extremely worried that she won't be able to get into a university dance program without Dance on her high school credit list. If you love dance, and can help us out on this 3-year journey before she starts grade 9, please sign this petition. Thanks!

P.S. Dance is part of the Ontario Arts curriculum and every high school offers credits in Drama, Music and Visual Arts. Dance is rarely offered.
