About Modern Dance Classes at our Studio
Unleash your creativity and embark on a journey of innovative movement with modern dance classes at the Colorado Conservatory of Dance. We offer a captivating blend of artistic expression and physical exploration, and our classes are designed to help dancers of all levels discover the beauty in unconventional movement. Led by dedicated instructors who are well-versed in the intricacies of modern dance, these classes provide a space where dancers can break free from traditional forms of ballet.
At the CCD, modern dance classes delve into the rich history and evolution of this dynamic art form. Dancers learn to express emotions and stories through organic movements that often deviate from classical techniques. With a focus on self-discovery and personal interpretation, we also encourage students to let go of preconceived notions and experiment with their own unique dance vocabulary. Through fluid floor work, intricate partnering, and thought-provoking routines, our modern dance classes encourage dancers to tap into their individuality and discover the profound connections between movement, expression, and the human experience.
What Community Says
If you are looking for a true dance school, I cannot say enough about them. My daughter has been dancing at CCD for the past 9 years. There is such a feeling of family and community and I am happy with how well she is cared for. Not just as a dancer but her entire well being. They teach to respect not only their teachers, but each other and mostly themselves. The kids here really make you feel good about yourself as well. The quality of dance is superb and their performances are at a professional level.

Modern Dance Classes at Colorado Conservatory of Dance
For Children’s & Primary Students
For Children’s & Primary students, Brain/Body Boogie is a fun, imaginative class which increases body awareness and physicality through intentionally directed free moving exercises. Students will build strong body-brain connections by exploring the world around them and inside themselves.
For Intermediate Students
The follow-up to Children’s/Primary Brain Body Boogie, Intermediate Improvisation & Somatics focuses on developing creative skillset that will become necessary in the Advanced division classes Contemporary and Modern. Students will focus on what dance feels like (as opposed to looks like), so they can continue to dance from the inside out. The class will learn to create movement scores, inhabit negative space, and perform improvised movement.
In Intermediate 3, we encourage students to study Intro to Modern dance. This provides them with an introduction to contemporary dance, and also knowledge as they grow into strong diverse dancers.
For Advanced Students
CCD’s advanced student modern syllabus focuses our dancers on the general concepts and also techniques of modern dance while imparting specific somatic and improvisational skills. This conceptual understanding allows dancers to be successful in a range of modern styles while creating a full and developed physical understanding of their body and its abilities. Including a historical overview of modern dance allows students to better interpret the development and future of this technique.
