Description

So you might have taken a ballet class, a musical theatre class, or maybe even a contemporary lyrical class... but get ready for the edgiest of dance techniques: Modern Dance! Originally a rebellion against traditional ballet, modern technique rejects pointe shoes and tutus, using sharp and avant garde movements- often in bare feet! *gasp* It is often used to express societal concerns or process significant historical events through therapeutic movement. Each week we'll explore the movement vocabulary developed by modern dance pioneers such as Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, and Erick Hawkins. You'll also become a modern dance prodigy yourself, as our class develops our own vocabulary for movement, inspired by these choreographers. You just might pave the way for the next modern dance craze! See you there!
