Although contemporary dance draws on the technique of ballet, it is characterized by a wider range of movement and expression to create a free and expressive style of dance that is ever evolving. Our contemporary classes are designed for dancers ages 12 and up.

Contemporary Technique Classes

Contemporary is a great foundation for all dancers. This genre draws on the vocabulary and variations of modern and ballet. The Contemporary technique is a popular style of dance encouraging movement based on feeling of a concept. This genre depicts a high level of understanding the momentum of movement and vision of feeling. Movements used range from soft and subtle to sharp and grand. Working on the dancer’s musicality is an important aspect of contemporary while building the dancer’s core strength, stamina, connection to floor work and foundations of contemporary movements.
