A combination of modern, ballet, jazz and many other styles, Contemporary dance is what’s happening now – what’s popular. These
classes start with a solid modern warm up, with attention paid to correct alignment for each body type. We aim to build strength and
flexibility in the upper body as well as the legs. In this style, finding one’s creative voice is encouraged via games that playfully challenge
the student to create. Choreographic concepts, partnering, and acting skills will be explored.
At the children’s and the beginner level, these concepts are introduced and students are gently guided to become more comfortable.
In the upper level, we explore in more depth, helping each student to grow further.
