The dance elective at Manhattan East strives to guide students to their own forms of self-expression, strength, discipline, and artistry through the teaching and of classical modern and contemporary dance techniques. Both novice and experienced students will be guided through bi-weekly classes instructing them on proper placement, alignment, movement facilitation, and creative understanding of the body. Class will consist of a beginning warm-up, technical combinations, and moving through space while covering ideas such as levels of movement, improvisation, contrast, and some partnering. It is our aim that students will develop greater kinesthetic awareness that they can carry with them both inside and out of the dance studio.
