Modern is a technique which stresses movement originating from the dancers core/center(pelvis) and less emphasis on the legs and feet as the primary catalyst for movement as done in ballet. It is usually performed in bare feet It employs such elements as contact-release, spiraling, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation.
All of our modern classes stress correct technique in this style. Class level is determined by the instructor, and is based on an individual assessment when the student takes a trial class. All students receive corrections during class to help them advance. Students advance to the next level based on the recommendation of the instructor.
We require all dancers to wear a black leotard with no shoes and black tights.
No coverups or skirts are allowed.
Hair must be pulled back into a pony tail.
