Modern dance explores movement, space, rhythm and a dancer’s creativity. Students start out learning basic technique and improvisation. As they continue, students receive more intense instruction in Graham, Limon and Horton. Some modern classes focus heavily on Lyrical dancing.
Lyrical dance is essentially a dance of emotion. It combines the grace of ballet with the fluidity of modern and the classic stylization of Jazz to create a form of dance that allows students to express emotion through movement of the body.
