Modern Dance

Instructor - Wynton Rice 

Tuesday, 7:15-8:15 pm

Classes start IN PERSON on Tuesday, November 17, 2020

ages 13+


This class provides a framework to discover and enjoy the integration of a fluid spine, articulate torso and pelvis to maximize full-body fluidity. 

Students begin with a warm-up that combines floorwork and standing center exercises, focusing on skill building with proper technique, musicality, and spinal articulation; followed by sequencing steps in the center and across the floor as students explore improvisation techniques and basic choreography exercises.

The movement vocabulary draws from several modern dance styles including Fagan, Horton, and Graham techniques. The emphasis on skill and detail facilitates the strengthening of the body while adding flexibility and coordination.

  • Footless or convertible tights or pants or shorts

  • Solid colored leotard or solid colored t-shirt

  • Barefoot OR dance shoes

  • NO street shoes on the marley floor

Fees: $10 registration fee; $459* yearly tuition (prorated), payable in quarterly installments of $153. For students enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein, yearly tuition is $351 payable in quarterly installments of $117 for one dance class. (Fees are as of Fall 2020.)
