Contemporary Dance

is a dance performance genre that developed during the mid twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominant genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world. Contemporary dance draws on both classical ballet and modern dance techniques.

Contemporary classes draw on a range of methods and techniques including: Graham, Cunningham, Limon, Horton and release technique.

Improvisation and composition techniques are explored with students learning to work together as a team to create movement phrases.

Contemporary classes increase strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness and endurance. These classes are a lot of fun for dancers of all ages.
