Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. It focuses on alignment, opposing movement, raw emotions and systematic breathing. Contemporary dance stresses on versatility and improvisation, unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Contemporary dance employs many modern dance techniques such as contact-release, fall and recovery, floor work, improvisation and lifts in partnering.

This dance genre is often done in bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed to many different styles of music. Modern and contemporary dance pioneer includes Martha Graham, Jose Limon and Merce Cunningham.

This class provides a wonderful introduction to contemporary dance and self-expression drawing upon elements of contemporary technique. This class is designed for students with little or no training in contemporary dance and who like to move, take risks and be expressive.
