Contemporary draws on modern dance techniques and current-day practices to help students build a strong technical foundation. Students cultivate dynamic movement principles, including weight, flow, opposition, phrasing, and breath, under the guidance of experienced dance educators and professional dancers and choreographers. Dance studios are open-air and exposed to the beauty of Usdan’s wooded campus. Depending on student interest, the class may culminate in a performance showcasing what dancers have been working on. To ensure that our classes best serve the group, our enrollment form includes questions about dance background. All levels welcome.
