Class Length: 60-90 minutes
The curriculum draws from Martha Graham’s, Doris Humphrey’s, Lester Horton’s and Jose Limon’s philosophies and techniques, and classes include floor work, center work, improvisation, and contact improvisation. Basic elements of modern dance increase understanding of breath control, gravity, balance, rhythm, focus, alignment, and spatial awareness. Modern 1, 2 & 3 are offered. Students must be in the Ballet 4 level to begin modern training.
