The number of schools providing dance classes in Arkansas is growing. During the 2016-17 school year, 13 of the state’s 262 school districts offered dance at the high school level. One of those schools, the Arkansas Arts Academy, will present its fall concert "Simply Classical" Oct. 5-6. Rogers High School dance classes will host a fundraiser Oct. 29.
