Start by throwing away the rule book, get those shoes off and get ready to express yourself! Modern dance emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as a rejection of social strictures and Ballet tradition, performed in theatrical, concert settings. It strives to portray in movements what the music writer expresses in their compositions. Modern dance is more easily defined by what it is not rather than what it is. Modern Dance utilizes the strong and controlled legwork of ballet, use of torso, floor work and improvisation. Develop creative self expression while exploring concepts of time, space and weight. As Modern dance incorporates lots of different moves, it is a great workout and will help improve your posture – no slouching in dance class!
