January 21 – May 16 (16 Weeks)
Contemporary Level One Ages 7-10
This modern dance course will highlight the modern dance techniques developed by Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, José Limón, and Jennifer Muller. These techniques are divided among various physical extremes: fall and recovery, rebound, weight, suspension, and isolation. These ideas can be illustrated in the way a dancer uses the floor as a place from which to rise, return to, and then rise from again. The way a dancer explores the range of movement between the one extreme of freedom from gravity and the other of falling into it. Curiosity, exploration, strength, and agility will be emphasized in this course.
