Contemporary & Lyrical Dance
Contemporary Dance for Ages 9 & Up
Beginners are Always Welcome!
Contemporary Dance is a fusion of modern, jazz and ballet techniques. In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance’s stress on the torso, and also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance. This type of dance challenges choreographers and dancers to use motion as an artistic form of expression.
KADC is one of the top schools in Ottawa for Contemporary, winning multiple Choreography, Costume and Overall awards across several regional and national competitions.
Recommended Additional Classes: Ballet and/or Jazz
