We need you in dance next year!

Over the last nine years, we have started a tradition of excellence in the dance program at Maple Mountain High School.  Nearly 2000 students have performed with our dance classes and now it's your turn to be part of the tradition!

If you haven't signed up for a dance class next year, I strongly encourage you to consider adding one to your schedule.  At Maple Mountain, we have six fantastic dance classes to choose from: Social Dance 1, Social Dance 2, and classes that are part of the State and National Core Curriculum for dance education; Dance 1, Dance 2, Dance 3/Dance Excel, and Dance Company.

  Social Dance 1 and 2 classes emphasize mastery of movement, quality and style in basic ballroom dance.  Dance 1 and 2 are introductory and intermediate classes on different dance styles and dance techniques.  These are all semester classes and will fill either PE or Fine Arts credit requirements.

Incoming sophomores, juniors and seniors are also invited to audition for Dance 3/Dance Excel and Dance Company, the most advanced performing dance groups here at Maple Mountain.  These full year classes are designed to help students become better dancers, performers, and choreographers through the medium of creative, contemporary dance.  The Dance Company (MMDC) and Dance Excel both perform in concerts, assemblies, and adjudications.  For more information about auditions, and how to prepare, go to

Come and be part of the legacy of Maple Mountain Dance next year. We need awesome students to carry-on that tradition of excellence--and we know that you can be part of it!

See you soon!

In light of the recent events in Florida and other tragedies that have happened around the country, Nebo School District is teaming up with KSL on February 22, 2018, as we Stand Up for a Safe Utah. Utah has a very powerful resource and that is the SafeUT app.  As you all know, the SafeUT app provides real-time crisis intervention and has been proven to save lives and stopped planned school attacks.

Our goal is to make sure that every parent, student and educator is aware of the app and has it downloaded on their phone. 

Throughout the day, KSL will be highlighting all that the app can do, the history behind it, the success stories and much more. In addition, there will be some fun for the students. Below is the outline to encourage student involvement:

  • Encourage your friends to download the app
  • Use hashtag #SafeUT on posts

KSL Contest:
Individuals will be able to share a screenshot of their phone with the app downloaded for a chance to win a $50 visa card

These screenshots will need to be posted in the contest on the KSL TV Facebook page

The school that is tagged the most by their students will receive 100 pizzas from KSL!

The contest will start Thursday, February 22 and Friday, February 23 at 3 p.m.

Watch KSL News at 5 p.m. on Friday to see which school will be receiving 100 pizzas!
