Modern dance is an expressive style of theatrical dancing that was created as a reaction to ballet. During this class, we will learn what constitutes modern dance and how it differs from other dance styles such as ballet, and what makes modern dance unique and special. We will learn some fundamentals of dance positions and postures then flow into natural movement, dancing throughout the space, learning how to gracefully move in and out of the floor. The class will culminate with learning a movement combination set to music with which the students can explore their inner artistry and expression.
No shoes required - modern dance is best done barefoot! Open to ages 12 and older.
