Class Descriptions


Beginner Contemporary:

This class is an introduction to the foundation of contemporary dance and is suited for the complete beginner looking for a fun way to work out, those at the beginning of their dance journey, or more experienced movers wanting to take it back to basics. In the warm up, a large focus is placed on breath, aiming to warm the body from the inside out. Dancers will be introduced to floor work, phrase work, inversions, and basic technique. Each class also includes a conditioning element to build strength and stamina. And - it’s all about having FUN!

Beginner/ Intermediate Contemporary:

This class builds routines as it progresses, beginning with floor work and stretching and proceeding to isolation development, moving from the head downwards. This class is inspired by Xuan’s years of dance experience in Taiwan and Australia. This class also incorporates improvisation to influence movement which allows it to be suitable for beginner as well as intermediate movers.

All Levels Contemporary:

A high-energy class that is open to all! Through a combination of different contemporary, modern, and improvisational techniques, we will explore the space within our bodies and beyond our bodies and encourage each other to reach for more. Simple, full-bodied, and improvisational tasks will guide us through our warm up, followed by accumulating center phrases — working on the floor, finding weight on our hands, and flying through the air — that blend dynamic range and boundless exploration. Within each class, our goals are to become more spacious and thoughtful movers, all while acknowledging the value in what we already have and enjoying the ride. 

Advanced Contemporary:

Join current SCD company members in this open company class. This is SCD's most advanced contemporary dance class. Teaching artists rotate every week between Artistic Director, company dancers, and guest choreographers. Come take class alongside the company dancers!

Contemporary Jazz:

This class contains a fusion of modern, jazz, and ballet. This unique style explores a wide range of organic, angular movements and syncopated rhythms with a base in classical technique. This type of dancing is fun and energetic and includes leaps, turns, and floor work. It’s a fun way to move and express oneself! 

Contemporary Hip Hop:

This is a Hip Hop Dance technique class with Contemporary Dance Elements. This style expresses emotion through soft but powerful movements created from the mood of any musical genre. This versatility of dance form can be danced to any style of music to create new styles of movement. In this class, students will learn the latest Hip Hop moves while building stamina and attention to detail, and developing understanding of complex rhythms, a strong confident attitude and coordination. Prior experience is not required, but can be helpful. Come ready to explore a new realm of expression and freedom of individuality.

Red Tent:

This class invites women from all walks of life, with or without dance experience, to join and celebrate the feminine spirit through dance. The class is led by Artistic Director Leymis Bolaños Wilmott, who cultivates a safe place to share the joy of dance while moving and creating together.
