Contemporary Dance Classes In Hillsborough, NJ
Contemporary dance builds upon traditional dance forms to create something distinct, unique, and full of expression. Ballet teaches students the art of form, grace, and agility while also introducing the terminology needed to be properly instructed. Jazz, which involves its own choreography based on abilities like strength and coordination, has its roots in places like Broadway musicals. Modern dance pulls from more recent innovators of the 20th century and incorporates the fundamentals of improvisational dancing, often rejecting convention in favor of free expression. Lyrical dance, named for the lyric-based music it is performed to, expresses the strong emotions echoed in the lyrics. With the skills learned from these forms, we can blend them to explore a fifth style known as contemporary. In a contemporary dance class, students will learn how to use the essentials learned from ballet, jazz, modern, and lyrical styles to explore versatility and creativity.
We offer contemporary dance classes on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. On Monday, a total of eight contemporary classes run from 3:10 p.m. – 8:05 p.m. in both small and large classes primarily for competition students.

Our mandatory dress code ensures that all of our students wear form fitting clothing (no loose or flowy attire.) For contemporary classes, we require that all students keep their hair securely pulled away from their face, preferably in a traditional ballet bun. Foot Undeez or Tan Pirouettes are advised.
