Modern Theatre

 

Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style.

COMBINATION STEPS Modern Grades 2, 3 and 4
Teachers please note:

Candidates will not be asked by examiners which two combination steps they are demonstrating. They will be asked about which music option they are using.

Grade 2 is a choice of tempo A, B or C
Grade 3 is a choice of tempo A or B
Grade 4 is a choice of the set music or suitable music of the teacher's choosing.

Candidates should be confident enough to state which of the above they are using when asked this information in their exams. 

All combination steps need only be prepared to be shown from one side only and performed as a solo.
