Contemporary Dance

Level 1  Ages 8-10
Level 2  Ages 10-12
Level 2.5 Ages 11-13

These classes are perfect for those students who love to create their own dances! We use a warm up that includes yoga, modern dance technique, breath work, and basic plies. The second half of the class is geared at giving students specific improvisation exercises which develop strength, focus, and an increased movement vocabulary. We also play games that involve weight sharing and partner work. We end by exploring group and solo choreography and composition. The emphasis in this class is on developing specific techniques that can be used to then create dances that express oneself in a joyful and authentic way.
