Contemporary Dance at ADTC

Contemporary Dance at ADTC

Contemporary dance emerged as an outgrowth of modern and other 20th century dance styles. Defining contemporary dance can be difficult because it is extremely fluid and not associated with specific dance techniques. Instead, contemporary dance is more of a dance philosophy where choreographers attempt to explore the natural energy and emotions of their bodies to produce dances which are often very personal. Contemporary dance places a heavy emphasis on the mind-body connection.

Contemporary Dance Classes @ ADTC Overnight Camps

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or experienced performer, we have a fun & challenging contemporary dance class that will be perfect for you. You’ll dance to upbeat popular songs while playing with balance, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation. In addition to learning a full performance piece, you’ll be encouraged to explore emotions through dances which push against traditional boundaries.

Contemporary dance is offered as one of the four core dance classes each session-week at American Dance Training Camps. It's personal, it's nebulous, and it's philosophy in motion - best of all, you'll love it!
