Modern Theatre for teenagers

Modern Dance: Grade 6

Saturdays1.45-2.45pm

Modern is anything that isn't classical!  We dance a range of styles from Jazz and Commercial to Lyrical and Dramatic - it isn't Contemporary, but there are some elements that overlap; it isn't Street Dance, (but there are some elements that overlap).  Limbering and strengthening exercises help your phsique, and immersion in expression of the music helps you communicate emotion and is a great release of pent-up feeling. What's not to like? 

 If Ballet is your 'thing', turning, elevated (jumping), arm and rhythmical combinations all help your technique and footwork as well as physique. If you just want to hang out with friends or get fit, there's no pressure to take exams, but we work towards ISTD Modern Theatre Dance exams for those that like collecting certificates. We do group choreography for shows, but it's not comopulsory to take part. Bare feet are worn for Modern and you can try a class in leggings and a t-shirt.
