CONTEMPORARY DANCE FOR ADULTS

Contemporary dance is an art form reflective of today's ever changing world. Contemporary dance examines the choreographic and performing process. It draws on modern dance techniques and an array of still developing philosophies of movement based on the study of the human body and body/mind interrelationships. FadaDance explores contemporary dance through technique, improvisation, and choreography.
