This class will focus on the multiple aspects of strength, flexibility and body awareness we can find in modern, without adhering to one particular technique. Our influences will be diverse, with elements of Lyrical, African, Jazz and Ballet traditions with a focus of musicality and rhythm.

HIP HOP dance refers to social or choreographed dance styles primarily danced to hip-hop music or that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. This includes a wide range of styles notably breaking, locking, and popping which were developed in the 1970s. What separates hip-hop dance from other forms of dance is that it is often freestyle (improvisational) in nature and hip-hop dancers frequently engage in battles—formal or informal one-on-one dance competitions. Informal freestyle sessions and battles are usually performed in a cipher, a circular dance space that forms naturally once the dancing begins. These three elements—freestyling, battles, and ciphers—are key components of hip-hop dance. Dancers who participate in hip-hop classes are required to wear comfortable clothing that allow the body to bend, move, and groove in every way. Sneakers or jazz shoes are preferred and hair must be pulled back from face.
Today, JAZZ dance is present in many different forms and venues. Jazz dance is commonly taught in dance schools and performed by dance companies around the world. It continues to be an essential element of musical theatre choreography, where it may be interwoven with other dance styles as appropriate for a particular show. Jazz dancing can be seen in music videos, in competitive dance, and on the television show, So You Think You Can Dance. Jazz dance also incorporates many leaps, turns, level changes, and characteristic moves. Dancers who are participating in jazz dance classes are required to wear form-fitting attire: solid color leotard, with black tights or tight work out pants, and jazz shoes or boots. Hair must be pulled back from face.
MODERN dance is based on creative self-expression rather than on technical virtuosity. Modern dance is a more relaxed, free style of dance, in which choreographers use emotions and moods to design their own steps, in contrast to ballet's structured code of steps. It has a deliberate use of gravity, whereas ballet strives to be light and airy. There are many different styles and practiced techniques of modern, but here at Highlands Dance Studio, we will incorporate all techniques to best diversify our dancers. Dancers who participate in modern dance are required to wear the proper attire: any solid color leotard, black tights or shorts, and bare feet. Hair must be pulled back from face.
