Contemporary

Contemporary dance emerges as a need to express freely with the body. It is strength, technique, creativity, interpretation, improvisation, letting go of the body maintain control. In MDS it is also a form of meditation, try it and you will understand why.

The contemporary dance classes are taught by Lucy Brown and Marina Miguélez, all excellent teachers and dancers. They are adapted according to age and level. Here you will learn to express your emotions through dance, working on the different techniques that exist in this discipline: Marta Graham; the Horton technique or the Limón technique and also fundamental aspects such as improvisation and many other physical abilities. In addition, at the Junior level, jazz and contemporary styles are mixed to offer variety and fun in each class.

Contemporary dance emerged as a reaction to classical forms and probably as a need to express oneself more freely with the body. It is a dance class that seeks to express an idea, a feeling, an emotion. In this type of dance, the movements are synchronized with the head trying to communicate a message. Contemporary dance can talk about a concept, propose an environment or present movements in order to achieve a certain aesthetic through body movements, it does not necessarily have to tell a story.

The classes are divided into two levels, Kids and Adults.

Contemporary for Kids:

A class to roll on the floor, do a handstand and play with movement, with up-to-date and fun music. In this class you will learn the basics of contemporary dance, understanding how your body works and what you can do with it.

These body techniques work on the different elements involved in dance (weight, space, rhythm, one’s own anatomy, etc.) both from guided improvisation, as well as from exercises and choreographies. A dynamic class with current music that encourages us to delve into the bodily sensations experienced when dancing.
