In September we are offering classes in:
Modern Dance - ages 6 - 18
Modern 1 is for beginning level dancers. Focus of the class will be on the concepts of dance (space, time, energy, etc.) and technique (turns, leaps, combinations). Class will introduce a variety of dance styles & choreography skills.
Modern 2 is a class for dancers with more experience. The class will have a strong focus on technique (turns, leaps, combinations) and will continue exploring the concepts introduced in Modern 1
Modern 3 will have a strong technique focus. Each class will begin with 30 minutes of work on a specific technique or skill and then will incorporate the techniques in different dance styles (Modern, Jazz, Musical Theatre, etc.). The last part will be for the dancers to work on choreography incorporating skills learned in class.
Modern 4 will be similar in structure to Modern 3 but at a more advanced level.
Other dance sessions that may be offered depending on registration numbers. 10 week sessions
