Contemporary 8 to 17 years
One of the most expressive and moving dance forms, contemporary and modern give students an exceptional opportunity to explore the art and craft of movement. Dancers will focus on Limon technique created by master teacher and choreographer Jose Limon. Characterized by its fluid and graceful elements, dancers must have a strong technical foundation and will involve every part of their bodies and emotions when performing this beautiful and artistic form of dance. For dancers looking to be challenged, these classes combine elements of jazz, modern, ballet, and lyrical dance to create unique works of art. This class has a pre-requisite of one year of either ballet or jazz technique.
Benefits of Contemporary
PROMOTES A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Contemporary is an extremely physical activity that requires flexibility, strength, and stamina. This type of dance requires a lot of hard work and training.
CREATIVITY AND MEMORY
Tap classes give your child a space to create their own dance combinations and moves to the beat of the music. They learn that they can use dance as a form of expression. Creativity is important to children’s mental health, and increases the strength of their brain.
IMPROVES POSTURE AND COORDINATION
Contemporary involves a lot of coordination and good posture. As your child advances in their contemporary, they will improve their posture, become more coordinated, and have more control over the body.
