Tap

This class combines movement and rhythmic foot patterns. Warm-up, across floor skills, and movement combinations are built for increased coordination, clarity of sound, and rhythm.



Modern

An enthusiastic approach to a technique derived from a feeling of undoing ballet. Students will learn various techniques on Horton, Graham, Dunham, Limon, and Released based style. The framework for this class consists of warm-up exercises that strengthen the body, across the floor skills, improvisational skills, and movement studies which further explore the technique and challenge the students.

Contemporary

Contemporary dance capitalizes on the universal language of dance techniques and methods found in ballet, modern, postmodern dance, and others. The movement is more internal, showing the dancer’s strength, control, and diverse quality of movements. The essence of contemporary is to break new ground as it provokes, expresses, and reflects through abstract concepts, images, or emotional extremes.
