About Us

Non-Profit Organization

The Mark Keppel High School Dance Company was formed in 2011 under Mr. Activate Arroyo, who now serves as Dance Instructor/Artistic Director of the MKHS Dance Arts Department. The Dance Company consists of two teams: the Dance Team & All-Male Hip Hop Dance Team. Students enrolled in Dance Company earn high school credits while satisfying their P.E. and/or Visual & Performing Arts graduation requirements.

The Dance Team specializes in creating polished concert works in a variety of dance styles and genres. The All-Male Hip Hop Team primarily focuses on synthesizing works in street dance and hip hop styles. Both groups work together each year to produce a culminating dance concert performance each spring.

The MKHS Dance Company Boosters was first formed in 2014, and is sanctioned by the Alhambra Unified School District as a school-board approved booster club. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is managed by current MKHS dance company parents and students.
