Contemporary Dance Classes

Contemporary dance is a style that typically deals with the abstract in both form and content. Unlike other more structured forms of dance, the movements are generally intended to be performed with a released or relaxed quality and can be completely improvised. Contemporary dance is very fluid in nature and in addition, it draws influences from many different dance styles and cultures such as, African jazz, jazz music, ballet, and eastern dance styles just to name a few.

Contemporary dance also follows closely on the heels of the modern dance movement which was brought forth through pioneers such as Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Jose Limon, and Lester Horton who all developed their own unique style and techniques that many still practice today. By enrolling yourself or your child in contemporary dance classes you will learn the strength of controlled legwork and the stamina or incorporating floor work with fall and recovery dance techniques.

Our contemporary dance classes are for pre-teen to adults and are 45 minutes long and are limited to only 12 students per class. Our goal is to keep our classes small so that our instructors can work with students collectively and individually without distraction. Each one of our instructors is professionally trained and experienced so that your child is learning only from the best.
