Contemporary Level 2
The fundamentals that dancers learned in level 1 are expanded upon in level 2. 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 full inversions, faster spirals to the floor, directional changes, improvisation and begin dancing “off center”. 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.
