Canyon Concert Ballet currently has one Contemporary 1 class, taught by Ms Cassie and Ms Alta. Learn more about this fun dance class!
What is Contemporary? Contemporary dance is a fluid dance style that blends ballet and jazz dance. A contemporary dancer uses movement to express strong emotions such as love, joy and anger, and usually perform to music with lyrics…the lyrics of the chosen song serve as inspiration for movements and expressions. Music may consist of many genres including pop, rock and hip hop. Movements in contemporary dance are characterized by fluidity and grace, with the dancer flowing seamlessly from one move to another, holding finishing steps as long as possible. Leaps are exceptionally high and soaring, and turns are graceful and continuous.
Class Description: This class is designed to introduce the young dancer to Contemporary Technique. Contemporary is a term to describe a broad and ever changing style of dance that draws from Ballet, Modern and Jazz Techniques. Ages 7+
