Contemporary Level 1
Fundamentals of contemporary dance are introduced in this entry level class. Classes begin on the floor allowing the dancers to fully move their bodies without gravity inhibiting them. The floor warm up is followed by center and across the floor work where dancers work on basic inversions, spirals to the floor, improvisation and varying positions of the spine. On average, students will remain in a level for 2-3 years. Students are evaluated each spring for placement for the next season. Ballet is not required but strongly encouraged since contemporary dance expands upon basic ballet placement.
