Level 1/2 Contemporary: Paige Kirk
This class is for students who have completed one full year of Contemporary 1/2 or who are new to contemporary dance. Students must be in Level 5, Level 4 or Teen Ballet and be 12 years old and up. Students will be introduced to the expressive style of contemporary and modern dance and build on their ballet technique by learning improvisation, contact and release work, and new ways of moving their bodies.
Advanced Jazz/Contemporary: Paige Kirk
This 90 minute class is a combined class for advanced dancers to further their skills and widen their exposure to different styles, advanced steps and new choreography in both disciplines. Students must have completed either Level 4 Jazz or Level 3 Contemporary and be in Level 7 Ballet to be eligible for this class. This is a performance class and will prepare both a jazz and a contemporary piece for performance.
Students in Level 7 Ballet are highly encouraged to take the appropriate contemporary class, as an understanding of contemporary movement is extremely beneficial to their development in ballet.
