These classes are an opportunity for students to learn a skill they didn’t have or fine tune previously-acquired skills. Our aim – whether through classes, productions, or camps – is to provide students with life skills that will serve them well now and in the future, as well as strengthen their faith as they engage with the world.

Modern Dance Workshop (ages 12-19) – The modern dance world is a wonderful one to explore because it allows the individual to be creative with movement and add his/her personal and artistic expression. During the fall semester we learned a large variety of concepts, techniques, and styles encompassed by modern dance that we will grow and strengthen into the spring semester. The fall class was a prerequisite for the spring class. Some of the genres we’ll be touching on include Graham technique, hip hop, jazz, musical theater, and contemporary modern with glimpses of ballet. This class will highlight the fundamentals of core strength and the overall correct way to use your muscles in order to further improve your skill in all areas of dance. I hope to see you in class! Instructor: Hannah Mucha
