Contemporary - Grade 2 & 3
Ryleigh Anderson
Contemporary Dance is a fusion of modern, jazz and ballet techniques. In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance's stress on the torso, and also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance. This type of dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion as an artistic form of expression. KaliAndrews Dance Company offers Contemporary Dance for ages 8 and up and beginners are welcome! KADC is one of the top schools in Ottawa for Contemporary, winning multiple Choreography, Costume and Overall awards across several regional and national competitions.
