Modern dance provides a multitude of movement possibilities for the human body and allows each dancer to connect with the dance space, the music and fellow dancers. These classes will cover both the foundations of modern dance through a variety of exercises, improvisations and movement combinations allowing students to become comfortable moving the body in new ways. Modern is a new dance technique similar to classical ballet, but with several differences. Modern aimed to expose basic human emotions through movement. Modern dance encourages dancers to use their emotions and moods to design their own steps and routines. It is not unusual for dancers to invent new steps for their routines.
This class provides students with an opportunity to explore movement drawn from a variety of contemporary styles.
