Modern

Modern01
Our modern classes are offered only to students who are also currently enrolled in the same level ballet class. While modern dance is often referred to as free-form, it does require a high level of technique, strength, and maturity. Our classes will focus on developing this technique through exercises and combinations. This grounded style of dance will incorporate a large amount of floor work and improvisation. We will also focus on using proper breathing technique. As dancers progress to the more advanced levels, they will be challenged to become more expressive with their dancing.
A typical modern class will start with exercises to warm up the whole body. Once warm, dancers will work on stretching and conditioning before moving to across the floor exercises. More advanced classes will also do short phrases across the floor. Classes will typically end with a center combination and a cool down. The end of class will also be used to work on choreography for the annual recital.
