Contemporary dance is a popular form of dance which developed during the middle portion of the twentieth century and has since grown to become one of the dominating performance genres for formally trained dancers throughout the world. Although originally informed by and borrowing from classical ballet, modern, and jazz styles, it has since come to incorporate elements from many styles of dance.
At VMA Dance we offer Contemporary Dance classes for age 6+. In our Junior classes, we focus on learning basic Contemporary Technique and allowing students to develop their own expressive style. In our Senior and Teen classes, we build on these foundations to develop a stronger technique, include use of breathe and style and focus on the performance elements. Whether it is telling a story through dance or expressing a feeling or emotion.
Our Senior & Teen students have the opportunity to take BTDA medal tests and perform at many events including local fêtes and our annual show.
