Section/genres include: contemporary/modern dance; ballet; jazz; hip hop; and special topics such as dance improvisation. IN each of these sections, principles of alignment, rhythmic and spatial awareness, dynamic, flexibility, and strength are investigated as foundations for freedom of expression. Very brief reading and writing assignments, as well as performance and video viewing and analysis, inform the work in the studio. Courses culminate in the sharing of technical accomplishments and creative work.
