Contemporary dance has become more and more popular, as well as, the desired style to learn. It’s a beautiful fusion of Ballet, Modern and sometimes Hip Hop. Whereas it is very popular, it also takes a lot of practice and time to understand and learn.
Since Contemporary is an evolution of ballet, knowing the basics of ballet is very important and serves as a prerequisite to Contemporary dance. To ensure your students’ personal growth is successful as a dancer, we have designed our Contemporary class accordingly.
To take Contemporary, you must be signed up in the Tuesday 5:45-7:15 Ballet 1 & 2 class (ages 9-18). Students will get a traditional Ballet class time of one hour and thirty minutes. They will receive classical technique training based on the French School Method. Directly after, we will begin their Contemporary lesson with a few exercises in technique and jump right into Contemporary choreography. The Ballet class not only serves as a practice to their technique needed for Contemporary, but a proper warm up before getting into choreography.
If you are unsure if your student is ready for Contemporary training, our coordinator is always ready to help you and your student find the best fit class for them. Call us to set up a call or meeting with our coordinator today!
