Modern dance differs from all classic forms of dance as it aims to liberate movement and expression from any rigid, ballet-like related framework. Through modern dance, children become much more agile while at the same time stronger in body muscle. The end-result is a dancer with excellent body control and the necessary stamina to use it in order to achieve the desired level of expression. Modern dance is one of the dance genres that require academic training and studies. Any aspiring professional dancer must be well-versed in modern dance, a fact illustrated by the requirement to prove these skills (as well as those related to classic ballet) in order to gain admittance to higher level, undergraduate dance academies. The academy specializes in the Limon modern dance training system. Students of seven years of age and older are admitted to the department.
