PDT’s modern dance classes include floor work, release technique, and improvisation. Modern dance is much less formal than ballet, which is highly codified. Regardless, modern dance requires core strength and some of the same technical aspects as ballet.
PDT offers three levels of Modern dance. CP Modern is for our Conservatory Program dancers unless invited by the instructor. Modern 2 is for students ages 9+ with dance experience. Modern 3 is for more advanced modern students. Beginner dancers should have a background in ballet before taking Modern classes. The Recreational Ballet class is suggested for students ages 7 – 10 .
