Modern Dance

Wynton Rice, Instructor
Tuesday, 7:15-8:15 pm

Ages 14-adult

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. 

Dance attire for this class: 

  • 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
  • Hair pulled back
  • No excessive jewelry
