Contemporary

Our generations contribution to the dance world is contemporary dance. Its style and technique are heavily influenced by the choreographer or instructors dance background and their own organic affinities. Contemporary dance movement often manipulates and combines ballet’s fundaments, modern’s elements, jazz and cultural dance’s style and rhythm with improvisation. Our Guest Artists are leaders in Utah and are accredited professionals that have danced and trained with leading modern or ballet companies, or have danced commercial and in the competitive dance circuit across the country. In our contemporary master classes dancers will be challenged to pick up style, perform, and explore movement challenges in a positive and encouraging environment.
