Contemporary Dance for Young and Brave (beginners)
16:30 - 18:30
Dances of the World Program of ethnic and classical dances mixed in a modern way - in each class we will explore one ethnic dance, e.g. African rhythms, mixed with classical ballet technics into a unique combination for expression and communication.
Contemporary dance tends to combine the strong but controlled legwork of ballet with modern that stresses on torso. It also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristics of modern dance. Unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction are often used, as well. Additionally, contemporary dance sometimes incorporates elements of non-western dance cultures, such as elements from African dance including bent knees, or movements from the Japanese contemporary dance
We offer two classes based on age:
