Contemporary Dance

tumblr_nke51qsSv11u04ukro1_500 Contemporary Dance is an expressive dance form with a free, artistic and creative feel.
Contemporary draws a lot of its technique from classical ballet but unlike ballet, contemporary often focuses on floor work and dancers will usually perform with bare feet.These workshops will introduce you to basic contemporary movement. Starting with a warm up the workshop will then flow through different combinations and techniques both in the center of the room and across the floor. The workshop will culminate with a short routine that will allow you to express yourself through movement. This is a great opportunity to explore this exciting form of dance for all levels.
Length: 1.5hours  Single Class: $35
