Monday     1:00 - 2:30         Beginning Modern               A living arts centre

saturday 12:00-1:30          Int/Adv Modern                     A living arts centre

Modern classes are designed to build a technique balanced by correct alignment, strength, flexibility, coordination, and musicality. Dancers explore the inner connections (breath, core to distal, head to tail, top to bottom, homo-lateral, and cross-lateral) that are necessary for freedom and ease in creative, outward expression. Through playful interaction with gravity, dancers study the dynamics of energy that are the support and motivation for all movement. Creativity is encouraged in modern dancers on every level. 

Prices
$15 for drop-in students
$12 per class when paid a few at a time

The Colorado Youth Dance Theatre (CYDT) is a youth dance company comprised of Denver area teens between the ages of 12 and 18 under the direction of Chris Harris. We provide professional dance and choreography experience for members with instruction by a diverse and talented group of local choreographers, designers and teachers.

CYDT members create and run a full production in May featuring their own choreography and that of local professionals. We also seek student designers and technicians to collaborate with CYDT members in the creation of our show.

CYDT company rehearsals are held on Saturdays 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM through May. A weekly technique class and attendance at rehearsals are required. Monthly tuition is $75. Work-study scholarships are available on an as-needed basis.

Louder Than Words Dancetheatre

The company will only be doing a few projects this season while I am in school working towards an MFA-IA. If you are interested in Auditioning for LTW please come a take a few classes beginning Sept 9, 2017 and get to know me and my work.   I am looking for advanced level dancers comfortable with Modern and Jazz Techniques as well as the willingness to work on complex choreographic projects.    In the mean time please contact me with any questions.  I look forward to sharing the new mission statement for the company and sharing the upcoming events.

Choreography Lab - Private class only 

This class is designed to give the dancer some tricks, tools and practice in the creation of dances by using improvisation, creative assignments and projects. Choreography uses mental creativity and design which is expressed thru movement of the individual body and the action and interaction of the body and other bodies in space. Bring your own work or create with me.  Please contact Chris@louderthanwordsdance.com
