Teen Modern Dance Classes

Teen Contemporary dance classes at American Dance Institute's Seattle dance studio 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 and 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.

You'll progress quickly and safely in your teen modern dance classes under the care of our instructors, unlike at many other schools where the instructor favors the more experienced and long-term students.

Finding great teen modern & contemporary dance class.

  • Look for non-competitive dance classes where everyone is friendly and you will always feel welcome.
  • The teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for you.
  • A dance studio with a special 'sprung' wood floor that 'gives' to protect your feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven forbid, run away from dance studios with hardwood or linoleum over concrete floors.
  • Does the school have accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason? They should.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert dance teachers who know how to give you personalized attention so you will progress faster.
