Contemporary Dance is created by combining a wide array of dance movements, from more classical traditions such as ballet, modern and jazz, to even adding some elements of hip-hop and musical theater!  Contemporary dance classes engage the dancer in fluid movement and transitions, while challenging the dancer to take risks and to perform with great depth of feeling and expression.   We prepare students who haven’t dance in years by creating a solid foundation of dance through center and floor work, and elements of improvisation and individual movement-style creation! Students wanting to take Contemporary Class  must also take a minimum of 2 hours of ballet technique per week.
