Why Take Contemporary?
Contemporary dance capitalizes on the universal language of dance by using all types of movement, from highly stylized to pedestrian. Thread elements of contemporary include modern, jazz, gymnastic, and world dance forms. Contemporary dance provokes, expresses, and reflects on the dancer and/or choreographer's point of view, allowing for uniquely personal interpretation and performance. Through Contemporary, we help students to communicate through dance, and understand the emotional context of different dance forms.
