What to expect: Taught by Courtney Scheel, our modern classes highlight the expressiveness and freedom of the dance genre, while honoring its fundamentals. We invite students to explore how their body’s lines, mass and musicality enhance movement and convey emotion and ideas. Progressing through a series of exercises, students develop an artistic sensibility and spatial, rhythmic, and body awareness. In an upbeat and inspiring setting, we cover key dance concepts, welcome students into the creative process, and celebrate the uniqueness of every dancer.

What to wear: Hair pulled back from face, dance clothes such as leotards, footless tights, shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, leggings, sweat pants. Barefoot or socks.
