Emotion & Commotion - Mixed Level Contemporary Dance (ages 16+)

 

Contemporary dance stresses versatility and improvisation with emotion and personal expression and focuses on floor work, using gravity to pull them to the floor. The technique combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. Dancers should have freedom of movement, allowing their bodies to freely express their innermost feelings. Contemporary dance also involves movement of the torso, employs contract-release, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance. Unpredictable and exciting changes in rhythm, speed and direction are used as well.

Students should have some basic dance experience.

Sizzle! Intro to Fosse Style Dance

 

Fosse is best known for his signature jazz style which features sultry hip rolls, smooth finger snaps, turned-in pigeon toes and specific, detailed movements. This traditional jazz technique filled with panache and flair will give any new or experienced dancer a reason to bring out their saucy side.

Though learning Fosse’s style is clearly a must for future musical theater performers, it’s really an integral part of any dancer’s education, because Fosse’s influence goes way beyond Broadway. The student will have the opportunity to learn exact, unfiltered Fosse technique. The instructor has first-hand experience studying Fosse style jazz in New York with some of the foremost experts on the historic style.

No previous dance experience necessary.
