Teen Modern Dance Classes

American Dance Institute also offers Modern dance classes for ages 8-10 and Adult Modern dance classes.

Junior & Teen Modern dance classes at American Dance Institute start with a thorough and effective warm-up. This will build your physical strength and stimulate your body's core connections. The warm up is followed by phrase work (choreographed movement) focusing on directional weight changes, rhythm, and Laban Fundamentals (i.e. time, space, effort, etc.) If you don't know what these terms mean, no worries. We will teach it to you!

Seattle is a mecca for Modern & Contemporary dance and our studio employs many of Seattle's finest teachers. They are exceptionally trained and know how to lead a great class!

Dennis Landmesser

We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed class today with instructor Dakota Crist.

The class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect.  I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class.  Dakota thought to ask at the start of class if there were any injuries which was especially  meaningful to me today because I have a sore knee.  Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense.  The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful.  Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.

Since March, I've suffered through six months of ZOOM frustrations.  ADI has excelled in solving that misery.  I could have been watching a high definition BlueRay with Dolby sound.  

Thanks for asking,

Dennis Landmesser
