Contemporary Dance (ages 16+) 

Taught by dancer and choreographer, Karen Rose, these courses are designed to be suitable for all experience levels from beginners to seasoned dancers looking for a class to stretch, strengthen, and move. Rose’s Technique classes are based in Graham and Limon Techniques, and explore the basics of contemporary dance from floor work, transitional movement phrasing, and traveling combinations like jumps, turns, and leaps. Drop-in options available for Technique only for $15/class, discount of 20% if you register for 3 or more weeks in one transaction. In Choreography classes, Rose will work with the class to create choreography, resulting in a dance piece, including the option to perform at the end of each session.
