Modern Dance classes with Ellen Robbins do what dance is supposed to do: train bodies, enrich minds, and set imaginations free. Ellen’s classes include technique, improvisation, and composition—the natural outcome of which is performance. At year’s end, students present their own solo compositions and participate in a group work choreographed by Ellen. Each child’s unique talent and personality shine through.
