Contemporary Repertoire

This Term, Repertoire is combined with Contemporary Elementary Technique to make one comprehensive course. In Repertoire you develop the specific skills required for recognizing the landscape of composition and choreography, as well as work on remembering dance sequences, duplicating styles, lines, and musicality.

We will practice performing these, and through feedback work on our presentation, theatricality, and continuity.
