4-6 Grade Contemporary/improv is a 1 hour class. Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Improvisation techniques will be taught and students will have an opportunity to express themselves through movement.
What To Wear
It is important for students to wear proper dance attire and shoes so the teacher can critic the dancers’ proper form and alignment and to prevent injury. Long hair is required to be pulled back away from the face. Dangling jewelry is not permitted. Students may wear any color tights and leotard (with skirt or hot shorts) with tan jazz shoes.
