About Contemporary Dance Classes at our Studio

CCD’s Conservatory Training Program in Tap offers 6 different levels of classes that are designed to develop dancers’ body alignment, core support, and understanding of musicality that are required for modern dance technique. CCD currently offers modern dance techniques based on Horton Technique and Humphrey/Limon Technique on a regular basis, and CCD also includes contemporary approaches to share these techniques with the students. From the cultural perspective, CCD students will develop the understanding of how different modern dance techniques were developed in the early 20th century and continue to evolve in the current professional field. In addition, CCD emphasizes anatomically appropriate training methods, process-based learning, and professional standards.
