Modern Dance


Beginning with creative dance for pre-schoolers and culminating in a free-style dance team, our modern dance program teaches technique alongside contemporary movement.

Parents are welcome to periodically watch their child’s class. However, siblings that are not enrolled in the class should be left at home or must wait in the waiting room with a supervising parent.

Costume requirements and costs will be detailed at the beginning of each year. Dance classes have a $20 yearly registration fee.

Dress Code
Clothing must fit the body closely so that the teacher can check proper alignment of the spine and hips and can guide technique to prevent injury. Most traditional dancewear is appropriate and might include bike shorts, leotards, close fitting tanks, leggings or tights. Baggy T-shirts, skirts and sweatpants are not allowed.

Hair must be pulled back from the face and neck. (Ponytails, buns and braids are all acceptable.) No jewelry is allowed during dance class except for a tiny pair of stud earrings. This includes bracelets, watches and rings.

Male dancers older than eleven years of age shoud wear a dance belt. For information on appropriate fit and proper wearing, we recommend visiting the Dr. Dancebelt website.
