Core Modern


Our sequential age and developmentally appropriate curriculum teaches modern dance technique using the method developed by our founder, dance pioneer Steffi Nossen. It incorporates rhythms, patterns, collaboration and creativity along with other founders of modern dance education such as Martha Graham, May O’Donnell, Lester Horton, Alvin Ailey and Merce Cunningham. All core Modern classes begin in September and culminate in a year-end performance in May.

Our Fall 2021 classes will be IN-PERSON!

This class is a creative and innovative introduction to basic modern dance vocabulary and curriculum. The Steffi Method uses structured sequences and dances to teach rhythm, patterns and levels. Basic composition studies are introduced in a supportive atmosphere to develop the individual voice of each dancer as well as encouraging dancers to work collaboratively. Self-expression and confidence building exercises are an essential part of the class.
