Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. This genre of dance strives to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Contemporary relies heavily on versatility and improvisation, very different from the core genres of dance. This style also focuses on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor. This style can be executed bare foot; and performed to a variety of styles of music.

MOMMY & ME
The Mommy & Me class is designed as movement exploration for our youngest dancers! The use of props, mats, and sing-along songs allows each parent to help their child develop motor and coordination skills in a fun, structured environment. This class is a perfect opportunity for young dancers to enjoy the dance fun before they are old enough to join class on their own for more dance instruction. Dancers are required to wear ballet slippers or bare feet; adults are required to come in socks or barefoot. Guardians and caregivers are also welcome to attend!
Modern is a term used to describe contemporary dance. Modern dance centers on a dancer’s own interpretations instead of structured steps, as in traditional ballet dancing. A modern dancer rejects the classical ballet stance of an upright, erect body, often opting instead for deliberate falls to the floor.
