Contemporary dance combines the strength and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance's characteristics of contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation. This genre of dance tells a story through grace and strength.
This contemporary class will combine technique development, stretch and conditioning, and choreography for a brain and body workout.
This class is a performance class for Winter Session, where you will be learning choreography to present at J'Adore Dance's recital in March. Dancers will be responsible for paying for their own costume.
Here at J’Adore Dance, we are lucky to have clients that have such a wide variety of dance experience. While this is exciting for us as a dance community, we want to make sure that our instructors are choreographing to the best ability of each individual. This year, all adult dancers will come together on the first class to then be placed into two groups. Groupings will be decided by the vision of our choreographers, ensuring that all dancers are able to showcase their full strengths.
* Week of January 7th, 8th, and 10th: All participants will dance together during the first hour (one hour class only)
* You will be notified by e-mail of which time slot your instructor has placed you in (first hour or second hour).
* Please note, you are not registering for a 2-hour dance class. Classes are one hour in length and dependent on group placement. By registering, you are committing to either time slot. Cancellation policies will not be altered due to class placement.
*** This is not an audition! J
*** This is a registered class only. Drop-ins and make-ups will be unavailable only for this 10-week session.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Jenna, Chantel, Annie, or your instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org
