Modern Theatre (ISTD)
Modern dance is a rhythmic style which originated in America. It allows a dancer to explore the different qualities and styles necessary for performing to varying pieces of music, emphasizing creativity in choreography and performance. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns, and will help to develop strength and flexibility. It thrives in dynamism, adapting and changing with the times. It can be fast and energetic, funky and stylish or soft and lyrical. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities and dancers skilled in Modern Theatre are some of the most versatile, creative and sought after.
