Contemporary 1 beginner

Contemporary dance is as unique as each teacher that teaches it. Each teacher takes the music, movements and qualities that they enjoy and creates their own style from it. Explore simple ways to move, roll, jump, turn and fall. You will learn basic contemporary dance technique: rhythm, body placement and movement patterns set to a wide range of musical accompaniment from gospel to solo guitar, crazy experimental sounds, to world beat and pop.

Contemporary 2 intermediate
Contemporary 3 advanced

Expand on basic contemporary technique by moving into more advanced choreographic patterns and technical movement vocabulary. Experienced to advanced dancers will work with a fusion of various contemporary techniques and complex choreographic inspirations. Placement in level 2 & 3 is at the discretion of the teacher.

Rust all welcome

A Contemporary class for the older dancer. You can decide what constitutes “older” for yourself. The class does not do big jump combinations or grand plies or movements that are hard on tired joints. A class for dancers who have nothing to prove but want to continue to dance into their third act.

Contemporary Choreography level 2’s & 3’s welcome

Explore! Learn! Express!  Learn compositional skills to support your own choreography.  Enjoy mentorship, feedback, exploration, tools to expand your own ideas! Work with fellow dancers on your ideas and theirs, expand your performance possibilities by participating in additional dances throughout the year. Bring your choreography inspirations to class! (this is not a technique class, choreography only).
