Modern Dance Technique

Modern dance is much like moving water.  It is precise and controlled, yet fluid and often emotional.  Modern dance is different from contemporary in that there are no "tricks" in modern dance.  It is more about the way the dance makes you feel, the story it is telling, and the way the dancers work together to create a tapestry of art with their bodies.

At Auburn Pointe our dancers are trained in Jazz and Modern techniques alongside their ballet training in order to provide a balanced approach to their conditioning. Jazz and Modern dance work the opposing muscles, bringing balance and well rounded strengthening for the dancers. This also aids in injury prevention, as well as exposing them to dance forms that are used in the professional industry.
