CONTEMPORARY

Contemporary is a newer style of expressive dance that has evolved from lyrical jazz and ballet. It is not as formal as ballet and does not have the crisp lines of jazz. It can be athletic or flowing, and has a unique approach to timing. Students have the opportunity create their own choreography for the pieces which broadens their understanding of movement and timing.

 

CLASSES OFFERED: Beginners Contemporary, Beginner Contemporary (11-13 years), Intermediate Contemporary; Advanced Contemporary.
