Adult Modern Dance Classes 

Adult modern dance classes are taught with contemporary dance class influences at American Dance Institute. 

Adult modern dance classes start with a simple and effective warm-up to build strength and to stimulate core connections and body awareness. The warm up is followed by phrase work focusing on directional and weight changes, rhythm, and Laban Fundamentals (i.e. time, space, effort, etc.) If you don't know what this means we will teach it to you! Our dance classes cater to advanced, intermediate, and beginning students.
