class descriptions



Modern Jr. II, Grade 5 & 6
(60 minutes)  

An introduction to modern dance.  Students draw upon their ballet training to execute modern dance movement.  A class that challenges dancers physically as well as mentally.

Modern Jr. Company, Grade 7-9 (60 minutes)  
Building upon the modern technique they have learned, dancers begin to interpret movement in a unique and personal way.  While reinforcing more traditional modern dance roots, students are encouraged to ‘break from the mold’ and test their limitations.

Modern Sr. Company, Grade 10-12 (60 minutes)  
An extremely spiritually centered class.  Dancers draw upon previous knowledge of modern technique to push their bodies and minds creatively.  Students learn a wide variety of non traditional movement and are encouraged to interpret it in their own unique style.
