Modern 1 is an intro class teaching the foundations of modern dance. Modern technique takes the foundations of ballet but adds freedom of movement and expression. Class includes learning how to initiate movement through the breath and use of the spine. Class warm-up will work through understanding parallel vs. turn-out position, core initiation, use of the floor, and flexibility and strength building with yoga and Pilates influences. Center warm-up and across the floor consists of runs, jumps, basic turns, swinging movements, and floor work such as learning how to safely fall, roll, and slide on the floor. Class will take pedestrian movement like running and jumping to create more intricate dance movement. Students will learn musical timing and how to use the body to portray emotion. Each week students will learn modern choreography building off of what is being taught throughout the class.

**Students are required to have a current enrollment in a ballet class.
