Modern dance classes at the Academy are grounded in Limon and Graham techniques, based onsolid anatomical and biomechanical principles. Dancersexplore organic rhythms of fall and recovery, spirals, contraction and release.Our classes challenge students to increase spatial awareness, clarity of motion and articulation as well as strength, stamina and flexibility. Encouraging dancers to move fluidly between giving in to gravity and freeing themselves from it, our ‘classical’ approach to modern dance technique prepares students to adapt to a wide range of styles of contemporary movement.Modern classes are offered to students the in Professional Division.
