Contemporary Dance combines ballet, jazz and modern techniques. Dancers learn choreography centered on feeling and emotion, and movements characterized by fluidity and grace, set to a diverse spectrum of music. This dance technique is designed to develop the mind, body and spirit to be an expressive communicator through movement. Structured technical exercises that condition the body for strength, coordination and flexibility are developed. Physical activities which focus on the aspects of space, time, shape, and movement dynamics are explored through individual work as well as group participation. A weekly ballet class is highly recommended as a companion to this class.
