Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of many dance genres including modern, jazz, hip hop and ballet. This dance style stresses versatility of both isolated/sharp movements along with fluid/soft ones. The class will focus on contemporary technique, improvisation, floorwork, musicality, and will help dancers develop their artistry and emotional connection to music. 

Truckee Dance Factory offers beginner to intermediate/advanced contemporary classes in levels 1, 2, 3 and 4/5.

The following dress code is maintained for safety and movement in contemporary dance classes:

  • Hair: Must be neat and pulled away from face.

  • Attire: Tight-fitting clothing such as leotards, t-shirts/tanks, leggings or shorts are appropriate. Clothing should not hinder movement (no jeans, no hats). No baggy shirts that will fall over students' heads when they go upside down. 

  • Shoes: Barefoot or dance paws (half shoe).

  • NO JEWELRY IN ANY CLASS for safety reasons.
