Adriene B. Hodge, Instructor
Wednesday, 6:00-7:00 pm
Intermediate modern dance class is the next step in our sequential modern classes. We expand on the knowledge learned in our beginning modern class, with a deeper exploration into the integration of a supple spine, expressive torso, and dynamic pelvis to enhance your overall body fluidity.
The class warm-up combines floorwork and center exercises focusing on refining your technique, honing your musicality, and developing greater control in spinal articulation. Building on these foundational skills, the class will progress to center and floor sequences, where you'll have the chance to explore improvisation techniques and delve into intermediate-level choreography exercises.
Our movement vocabulary draws inspiration from various modern dance styles, such as Fagan, Horton, and Graham techniques, offering you a diverse and enriching experience. Through an emphasis on skillful execution and attention to detail, you'll not only strengthen your body but also enhance your flexibility and coordination.
