Junior/Teen Modern I&II
Requirements: Student must be concurrently enrolled in ballet. Instructor evaluation required to enter levels II and above.
Modern Dance delves into the explorative, expressive, and abstract dance styles of dance that were born in the early 20th century and are being developed with excitement and fervor today. Exercises and choreography emphasize learning how to connect your body and move through space. Modern Dance also emphasizes different kinds of energy, flow, and ways to use your weight. Each session learns a “combination” (choreography), during which students focus on performance quality, emotional expressivity, and technical range. Exercises are expanded upon each week.
