Coastal Dance and Music Academy
Contemporary Dance Program
CDMA offers beginning through advanced contemporary classes. Contemporary classes incorporate elements of ballet, modern, and jazz dance techniques and an array of still developing philosophies of movement based on the study of the human body and body/mind inter-relationships. It is an expressive style of dance that abandons the rigid, centered aspect of classical forms of dance, and utilizes unconventional movements from styles around the world. This style of dance focuses on unpredictability, expression, and freedom of movement while combining a strong focus on technique, strength, and improvisation.
