Class Description

We offer a few different enrollment points throughout the year.  Please contact us at for more information.

This class meets on Wednesdays.

Contemporary Modern 2 is a beginning / intermediate level class where students develop basic contemporary dance concepts through proper technique, and alignment.  Some of the concepts learned are; use of torso, on balance off balance, floor work and inversions, move with weight and powerfully through space, and use of breath.  As students progress through the levels longer choreographed phrases will be learned with emotional and textural nuances along with improvisation work.
