Modern Dance

Modern Dance is designed to build a vocabulary base that inspires each student to discover their creative expression. Dancers experience the fun of exploring shape, size, speed and different levels in space through fun exercises and experiments. They will cultivate a strong sense of self-awareness by moving through space alone as well as with others and become comfortable responding with movement either with or without music. The experience is enhanced by the immediate response and collaboration of live accompaniment.

Please note: some dance classes are closed to new enrollments mid year as the students begin work

on collaborative choreography for their spring concert.

Contemporary Dance

A flow based class that borrows from jazz, ballet and modern dance. This class starts with a warm up, then across the floor exercises and then progresses to a combination(to popular music) using gestural and pedestrian components to build choreography. This emotionally expressive dance class pushes today’s boundaries of movement and promotes an uplifting, supportive, and motivating environment. “When you dance with your heart, your body will follow”- Mia Michaels

Creative Dance

A pre-modern dance class for children with the ability to sustain 40 minutes of focused activity. Children will discover creative expression and experience the fun of exploring the elements of dance: shape, size, speed and levels in space.
