Contemporary Dance

21/22 Enrollment Opens May 15

The Contemporary Dance Program is an opportunity for students to become more versatile dancers by exploring parallel versus turned out alignment, spinal articulation, weight-shifting, and groundedness through floor work.  Dancers explore strength and subtlety, movement dynamics and space, the expansiveness of their kinesphere, and movement invention through improvisation.  This program helps dancers to continue to refine the balance between technique and artistry.
