MODERN/ CONTEMPORARY

Modern/Contemporary is a contemporary theatrical form of dance that emphasizes specific techniques for developing the use of the entire body in movement. The movements are often sharp contractions making definite patterns and ideas throughout the movements. Modern has become a social dance trend. Class warm-ups are based on the techniques of Graham, Cunningham, Horton, and Limon. Students work on basic modern dance poses and movements as well as choreography and expression.

Modern/Contemporary is currently offered for students ages 7 and up. Students are required to have a background in Ballet in order to take this class.
