CONTEMPORARY

 "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 dance is taught creatively at the choreographer’s choosing. There is a strong base of pilates, ballet technique and line quality incorporated into classes. Holly combines her love of Jazz- Fusion styles and fitness into classes.

Graham-based Contemporary classes increase range of motion, connect of 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. Graham-based classes incorporate strong Pilates principles.

MOVEMENT SHOULD BE APPROACHED LIKE LIFE - WITH ENTHUSIASM, JOY AND GRATITUDE. FOR MOVEMENT IS LIFE, AND LIFE IS MOVEMENT, AND WE GET OUT OF IT WHAT WE PUT INTO IT. 

RON FLETCHER

“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. EVERYONE HAS A MESSAGE AND DANCE IS THE HIDDEN LANGUAGE OF THE SOUL.
