Modern/Contemporary Forms I: Dance Class
with Dani Robbins. Grades 5-8 or by discretion of instructor.
This course will serve as an introduction to contemporary dance technique and dance history. Drawing from both classical and modern dance forms, students will work to develop a movement vocabulary that is spacious and articulate. Classes will begin with a thorough warm-up rooted in anatomy and move through a series of exercises and movement phrases that will prepare us for full-bodied dancing. We will work to develop a piece of choreography for performance. This class will be designed for students with some interest or experience in dance, but prior training is not necessary.
