This class focuses on developing the connection between technique and artistry, drawing from traditional modern dance forms. Expanding beyond the physical discipline, students will grow through the exploration of movement, space, musicality, and creativity. Modern dance builds on the strength and coordination developed in classical ballet training, and provides the students an opportunity to make connections from one style of dance to another.
