Dance Class

Hi all you awesome readers, It’s Emily, and every week I take Modern Dance

Now Modern Dance is different than Ballet or Ballroom because you are barefoot and you dance with your feet facing forward, called parallel, rather than to the side, turned out.

Like any dance form, you have to stretch. This is called the straddle

You have to really practice to stretch this far.

Here is another one. Now I put my leg to the side and press. It feels good.

Next we play a improvising game. First, I strike a high pose.

Now a low pose.

After all this posing, I’m getting hot!

I have to keep my arms held when I jump.

I move very fast across the floor.

In addition to jumping, I have to practice being grounded (low). I bend my knees real low.
