The Sunset Dance Department began in 1974 under the direction of Mrs. Brenda Wilder.  The program has been through many changes over the years. Studies in our program can lead to numerous opportunities within the field of performance and education. Students can obtain the necessary tools to teach, choreograph, and continue their dance education to a higher level. Sunset currently offers Dance I, Dance II, Dance III, and Sunset Dance Company, the resident performing arts group at Sunset HS.  Mrs. Huggins began teaching and directing at SHS in the fall of 2010 after graduating with a Bachelors degree in Dance and Education from Texas Woman’s University.


As the resident performing company, Sunset Dance Company performs in and around the Dallas area as well as competing and performing  throughout Texas and the United States. Starting in 2012 Sunset Dance Company has gone to competition every year competing against standout dance studios and programs. Sunset Dance Company is comprised of guys and girls who LOVE to dance. SDC holds auditions every year. SDC specializes in performing hip hop, ballet folklrico, lyrical, modern and jazz.


Sunset Dance Co. Alumni represent the program well. Students have recieved scholarships for dance and are part of many college dance programs in Texas. Mrs. Huggins is so proud of these students and continues to guide her dancers towards a college career.
