MODERN

Modern dance is a form of contemporary theatrical and concert dance employing a special technique for developing the use of the entire body in movements expressive of abstract ideas.  Benefits of modern and contemporary dance include increased ability to retain choreography, improved musicality and timing, improvement in dynamics of performance, increased strength, flexibility and confidence in expressing oneself.  The class will study choreographers from the early, central, and late modern periods and put their different forms and aesthetics into practice.
