Fall 2017 Morning Classes

Our daily morning classes offer advanced and professional dancers the opportunity to study a diverse range of contemporary dance concepts, vocabularies, and techniques.

Classes are broken down into month-long series that feature a selection of alternating methods and instructors, each called a Contemporary Cross Training Series (CCTS 20, CCTS 21, etc,) . 

All classes take place 9:30-11am at the abrasiveMedia studio in Houston Station unless otherwise specified.
