CONTEMPORARY DANCE

"DANCE IS THE HIDDEN LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL OF THE BODY"   

-Martha Graham

"ABILITY IS WHAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF DOING. 

MOTIVATION DETERMINES WHAT WE DO & ATTITUDE DETERMINES
HOW WELL WE DO IT"

-EARL NIGHTINGALE

Contemporary

Contemporary dance is taught creatively by Holly Gruver, incorporating classical technique. There is a strong base of pilates, ballet technique and line quality incorporated into our classes. Holly also combines her love of Jazz-Fusion styles and strength conditioning into classes.

Graham-based Contemporary classes increase range of motion, connect the weight of the body into the floor, and work the contraction and release of core muscles. Incorporating and practicing this style of contemporary can bridge the gap between the ballet dancer who moves accurately into the dancer who communicates through the movement. 

 

“PURSUE EXCELLENCE IN ALL THINGS. FIRST IN WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT AND THEN IN DANCE. FIND THE SPACE IN BETWEEN THE MUSIC, BREATHE AND MOVE."
