Contemporary Dance – Level 3
Ages 13 and up, Contemporary dance combines the stylistic lines and technique of modern dance and ballet with contact-release, floor work, and movement improvisation. Class incorporates warm up techniques from José Limón and Lester Horton and progresses to floor combinations that develop specific skills. Stuctured improvisations increase the dancer’s understanding of tempo, rhythm, level, and quality of movement while stretching each individuals movement vocabulary. This class is for experienced dancers.
