Beg. Contemporary

Contemporary includes a full warm up, across the floor and/or center technique, choreography, and elements of structured improvisation. This dance form developed Modern dance in the 1900s as a revolt against the restrictions of Ballet. As a dance form, it continues to be advanced through movement innovation and exploration, drawing from various dance forms such as Jazz, Hip Hop, Martial Arts, and theatrical performance. This class challenges dancers to explore the quality of movement, musicality, and performance. Suitable for dancers with a solid background in any form of dance who are looking to improve their execution and adaptability. No special attire or shoes required.

Jacob's movement-based choreography class with Contemporary and Modern Movement & Technique. The class is "Cinematic" in the sense of how raw and expressive the movement is that the process calls for. Students learn most from individuals choices and textures within the music and choreography given.

Beginning: A great place to start if you’re interested in a new dance style or have never taken dance classes before. You will be taken through the basic elements of dance, step by step, so you will have a better understanding of the movement and eventually be ready for the next level of classes. This may include rhythm, counting, body isolations, placement, repetition of movements, applying foundational knowledge into dance combinations & common vocabulary.

Choreography & Technique Classes focus on detailed choreography and technique. These classes typically involve more precise and challenging movements than the cardio classes.

*This class may contain Adult/Mature Content, such as choreography and/or music selection*
