Class Details

This course is designed for students with some experience with dance technique who wish to develop their skills specific to modern dance. Students will learn the physicality, aesthetics, and philosophy of the art form. We will build increased endurance, expanded vocabulary of movement, and will explore more complex use of space, with a focus on musical awareness and longer phrases of movement. Proper body alignment and use of breath, space, and music are emphasized. Live musical accompaniment will give students the opportunity to approach movement with varied and nuanced sound. Approaches to technique created by various founding figures in modern dance will be introduced where appropriate, in order to recognize the depth of styles and shared concepts at the root of the art form.
