Modern Dance was formed as a break away from the structure of classical ballet. There are many pioneers in Modern dance such as Martha Graham and Lester Horton who emphasize a whole-body approach including contractions, and release, flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness to allow freedom of expression. Students will be taught not only technique but the philosophies behind the different schools of Modern Dance.
