What is Modern Dance?

Modern Dance is a structured genre of dance that incorporates a vast and constantly evolving vocabulary of movement. It can be athletic, fast, slow, high impact, gentle, loud, silent, frantic and still. In classes, you will experience a wide variety of movements, tempos, and emotions. It is an excellent way to get a great workout while listening to a wide variety of music. There’s something for everyone in Modern Dance. Improvisation and your own personal interpretation of dance moves are often used to increase body awareness and tap into a physical expression of your emotions. You name it, you’ll probably find it in a Modern dance class. In its sophistication, it has developed many styles and techniques. The beauty of it is that it allows freedom which can be initiated by music or by an internal theme or inspiration. Modern Dance is based on the foundations of techniques developed by artists such as Martha Graham, Lester Horton, Jose Limon, and many others.
