In our Modern Dance classes students become aquainted with the dance technique of the world famous Alvin Ailey Dance Theatre, the Horton Technique. Horton's technique counts among the most demanding dance techniques, requiring high ability for postural control and balance, good core stability and strong back muscles as well as well-stretched hamstrings in powerful muscular balance with all other leg muscles. The focus lies on virtuous choreogrphies which underline the dancer's expression and skills.
Classes are 75 minutes and are perfect to be combined with other techniques and genres.
