Modern Dance Ages 6 - 18
4 different levels depending on ability & experience
Modern 1 is for dancers who have had some dance experience. Focus of the class will be on the concepts of dance (space, time, energy, etc.) and technique (turns, leaps, combinations). Class will introduce a variety of dance styles (Jazz, Modern, Musical Theatre, etc.) & choreography skills.
Modern 2 is a class for dancers with more experience. The class will have a strong focus on technique (turns, leaps, combinations) and will continue exploring the concepts of dance (space, time, energy, etc.). Class will introduce a variety of dance styles (Jazz, Modern, Musical Theatre, etc.) and choreography skills.
Modern 3 will have a strong technique focus. Each class will begin with 30 minutes of work on a specific technique or skill and then incorporating the technique in different dance styles (Modern, Jazz, Musical Theatre, etc.). The last part will be for the dancers to work on choreography incorporating skills learned in class.
Modern 4 will be similar in structure to Modern 3 but at a more advanced level. Dancers will spend more time on combinations and dance exploration. Dancers will also have more time for choreography using the skills and combinations learned in class and combining different dance styles and more challenging choreography.
