White Marsh Ballet Modern Classes

Modern dance is one of the techniques along with Ballet that students often need to enter into most magnet schools and university dance programs. Modern dance is imperative to teach dancers how to curve, bend, find off center balances and drop their weight.  Class work is performed barefoot true to the technique of modern dance.
