Contemporary ballet is an excellent class for beginners, and advanced students alike.

Training methods and technique

Contemporary ballet draws from both modern dance and classical ballet for its training methods and technique. For a dancer to be able to embody various styles the training regimen has become more diverse. In addition to classical technique, which often includes the signature speed and style of George Balanchine for American dancers, dancers study modern as well. In addition, many dancers do various forms of cross training.

Pilates and yoga are often included to loosen muscles and align the body. With contemporary work, dancers’ spines need to be more supple and they need to understand how to be grounded. This is in contrast to classical and neoclassical ballet where the dancers are required to “pull up” and the upper body is held.
