Contemporary Dance


with Brigitte Paulus

Calendar Next available session starts Jan 25, 2022 at 5:30 pm, runs for 6 weeks

If you're new to dance, or you danced long ago and want to get back to it, this is the class for you. It is taught by Brigitte Paulus, a professionally trained dancer with over 30 years of experience teaching people of all ages and abilities. Brigitte believes that anyone can be a dancer. She loves to teach people the skills and vocabulary of dance while sharing her passion for artistry. Contemporary dance is a mix of all styles, drawing from ballet, jazz, popular dance, and more. The music is fun and the movements can be modifiec so everyone can do them safely. In a mixed level class people with existing training will be challenged, while beginners will be taught basic skills. No special dancewear is needed: socks, leggings or sweatpants, a t-shirt, and a willingness to have some fun while you learn is all that you need.
