     Arts Alive modern classes are focused on sending a visual message of God’s love through movement.  In modern, students will learn challenging leaps, turns, body formations, and technique that often go against traditional ballet technique.  These will push students to be well-rounded dancers.  Students will also develop confidence in their own movement through exercises of personal improvisation and contact improvisation, which are the stepping stones to choreography. 

     A ballet technique class is strongly encouraged in accompaniment with modern.
