Contemporary Dance is ever changing and evolving to reflect a rapidly changing society.
Stemming from modern dance, contemporary dance tries to reinvent movement and questions the role of art in society. Acquisition of contemporary technique is considered to be essential for today’s emerging young dancers.
We offer 5 levels of contemporary training for children as well as a Junior and Senior Contemporary Company. Adult contemporary dance classes are offered on Monday evenings from 6:00-7:00 pm.
Contemporary 1 Students age 6-7 are given the opportunity to explore movement and their creativity. Less structured than other programs, dancers will be encouraged to move in expression, rather than to specific music cues and strict position. Basic technique for safety will be instructed. (Mondays, 5:00-6:00 pm).
Contemporary 2 Students age 7-9 build on their creative movement ability in this class, incorporating musicality and partner/group work into their pieces. We will explore and challenge social concepts/themes in choreography. Weekly strengthening and balance exercises will also be done weekly. (Mondays, 6:00-7:00 pm)
