open Contemporary (10+ years)
Contemporary dance classes assist with the development of creative and expressive movement as well as enhance spatial and body awareness as dancers gain fluidity, grace and control. Contemporary choreography pulls from a variety of other dance styles such as modern, jazz, lyrical, and ballet. It incorporates both the strong and controlled legwork of ballet as well as a unique focus on contact-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and the versatility of improvisation skills. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used as well.
