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.
Focus is on the fine-tuning of technique, movement quality and style, and further development of phrasing and combinations. Students are encouraged to work within the technique and challenge themselves to make the dance their own. Dancers must feel comfortable in a performing atmosphere. A strong commitment to attending class regularly is a must.
This is a fast moving class where students are expected to pick up the warm-up section and complex phrases rapidly. Technical strength and experience are a necessity. We will rework previous repertoire as well as create new work. Work is created for performance. Dancers should be passionate in taking their work to the stage. A strong commitment to attending class regularly is a must.
Barre, floor barre, center work, and movement combinations will be the focus of this class. The class will incorporate various approaches to dance conditioning to improve strength, flexibility, and alignment. All intermediate & advanced dancers are strongly encouraged to take this class.
This is a non-performing class for dancers who are interested in challenging themselves to explore movement from a place of impulse and self-expression. This class focuses on exploring intuitive movement through phrasing, combination, and improvisation. Students are encouraged to work within basic technique and create in collaboration with other dancers.
