About Our Adult Modern Dance Class

Continuous learning

Our modern dance classes for adults are taught with contemporary dance class influences at American Dance Institute.

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!We offer dance classes for advanced, intermediate, and beginning students.
