Counterpoint Contemporary 1 (1 hour, grades 4-6) and Counterpoint Contemporary 2 (1.5 hours, grades 7+) are designed to provide dancers and aspiring choreographers with a robust foundation in movement. Incorporating principles from a variety of technical forms, including ballet and a wealth of modern styles, Counterpoint will nurture powerful, versatile dancers. Students will cultivate strength, flexibility, agility, and an understanding of healthy alignment, and will employ these qualities with a sense of suspension and release, grounding and freedom. This practice will clear the way for safely bending traditional dance forms and create an expanded palette for artistic expression.
Our Counterpoint curriculum was created by the incomparable Kate Martel.
Counterpoint 1 meets Thursdays from 5:30-6:30 PM.
Counterpoint 2 meets Mondays from 5:15-6:45 PM.
