Contemporary Dance Classes
Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down the the floor. The dance genre is often done in bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed to many different styles of music.
Requirements: For grades 5-12.
Contemporary dancers are also enrolled in an appropriate ballet class.
