Contemporary Dance

Led by dancer and choreographer, Karen Rose, these classes are designed to be suitable for all experience levels from beginners with no prior dance experience to seasoned dancers looking for a casual environment to stretch their muscles and maintain their bodies. Rose’s Technique classes explore basics of contemporary dance from floor work, transitional movement phrasing, and traveling combinations like jumps, turns, and leaps. In Choreography classes, Rose will work with the class to create choreography, resulting in a dance piece that will be performed at the end of each session. Sessions occur on the following days: A = Sunday afternoons, B = Friday evenings, C = Monday mornings.
