Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. What is Contemporary? Using music to translate emotion into movement, contemporary is very fluid and utilizes aspects of ballet and jazz dance. Dancers are challenged to find meaning behind the music and connect that to the choreography. Dancers are taught to use smooth transitions between movements and incorporate breath into their dance. Classes include character development through discussion and examples in both dance and student experience. Contemporary is suggested for ages 12+ who have previous ballet experience, as it focuses on emotional strength and older emotional themes. Students are asked to draw upon their own experience to relate to the music and choreography and use the encounter to grow as a dancer and as a person.
