Modern IV
Modern IV
While expanding on the technique and form of modern dance introduced in Modern III, the Modern IV class deepens students' understanding of Time, Shape, Space, Force, and the Body in movement. Students further develop their strength, flexibility, balance, and line in structured warm-ups and floor work, and learn more advanced phrases and movement combinations. Repeated dance phrases week-to-week provide a framework for development in technique, and performance, and also allow for opportunities to break the repertory down and build it back up in the students' own way. Students are encouraged to express themselves in solo, duet, and group choreography projects. The class allows for the observation and reflection on the creative choice and performance of peer work, while creating a group dynamic that is supportive of each student as artists-in-process. This class is designed for students who have completed Modern III or the equivalent. Read more about Dance at BAX

Age-appropriate hip-hop and pop music is used. In this class, students expand upon the fundamentals of house, basic grooves, tutting and learned choreography and build a deeper understanding of musicality and stylized choreography. Students create original choreography as well as learn hip hop vocabulary and history. They will also learn how to give and receive peer feedback. Each class will end with a high energy freestyle circle in which the students will be given the chance to explore their personal voice as dancers while combining the techniques and fundamentals learned throughout the class.
