Modern dance is great preparation for high school dance and college dance. Modern explores movement, space, rhythm and the dancer’s own creativity with emphasis on momentum, shapes and patterns. This form of dance is inspired by nature, music, art and human emotions. Our modern classes are accompanied by 2 live percussionists using congas, a drum kit and other percussive instruments during these classes to enhance the students’ experience.
