Modern Dance 2

  /  Modern Dance 2

Modern Dance 2

Taught by Kara Komarnitsky

The central goal for the dancer at this age moving forward becomes the development of new movement patterns and body awareness that allows them to move in more complex ways, thereby increasing spatial awareness, develop observation skills, beginning to refine their technique, and a more in-depth development of their performance skills.  These goals allow the dancer to connect and move with others in the group, building confidence in each dancer as complexity increases.  The instructor will use training and movement patterning, floor and center work, across the floor, more modern and ballet terminology and instruction of those terms, higher level choreographic/improvisational concepts, etc.  Basic movement concepts from historical modern dance artists will be incorporated into classes, such as Graham (contraction/release), Humphrey/Limon (fall/recovery), Cunningham (basic back curves, articulate feet, concept of indeterminacy) and opposing qualities of movement will be introduced in order to find deeper finesse and articulate motion. Dancers are encouraged to ask questions and seek clarity…to be active, motivated and confident learners.

Tuition $85 charged monthly

6th and 7th Grade

How do I register?

Use the table below to access the online registration form.  Once you fill the form out, select your classes, and input your information the enrollment will be sent to the studio. If you have issues or questions regarding this process, please get a hold of the studio.

Can we try a class first?

Absolutely!  We’d love to offer you a FREE trial class to come and experience, first hand, the magic of what we do at South Valley Creative Dance Studio.

Please use the table below and select “TRIAL” enrollment on the form.  This will let the studio know that you are interested in learning more but not enrolling for the full semester/year just yet.  If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the studio.

What fees do you charge?

Monthly tuition rates are found in the class table below. In addition to tuition, we ask all families to pay a one-time $60 costume and production fee per student in the spring. This covers the cost of costuming ($30) and producing ($30) our show. Using the costume fee, the studio will purchase a leotard that your dancer will wear for the performance AND that you can keep afterwards.  Using the production fee, the studio will pay for a videographer to shoot and record the show and will provide a digital download to you.

Do I need to enroll for the whole year?

We highly suggest that you enroll for the entire year. Our Fall semester is spent in the studio dancing and building skills, while our Spring semester is used to choreograph and prep for an end-of-year recital. We don’t want anyone to miss out on enjoying and being a part of our amazing production.

If you can only enroll for part of the year, we recommend dropping from classes at the Winter/Holiday break.  Please see below for more information about our withdrawal policy.

What if we change our minds?

Every effort is made to make sure you love your dance class and want to keep coming – not only all year but for years to come!  If you have issues with the studio or teacher, please feel free to bring them to the attention of the studio owner – we will make every effort to make a place for you at this studio.

If, however, you must leave classes we require a 30-day written (email is fine) notice of your withdrawal, after which time no more tuition will be due.  This policy is strictly followed and will be enforced – it’s also a part of the legalese when you register – so you’ll see it again as a reminder!
