Modern dance is designed to develop the mind and body to be an expressive communicator through movement. Structured technical exercises that condition the body for strength, coordination and flexibility are developed. The focus on correct alignment, fall and recovery, centering, and proper articulation of the joints. Modern approaches movement with a unique combination of imagination, expression and technique. The class explores the fluid spirals and dynamic contractions used to create dance patterns, expressive movement, and spatial perception.
