Welcome to Vashon Center for Dance!

Vashon Center for Dance (VCD) is honored to have served the Vashon Community for more than 2 decades. Whether students are pursuing a career in dance, or study dance because they love it, all students are provided the same excellence in training in a supportive, challenging, and nurturing environment. Confidence, dedication, self-motivation and creative thinking are qualities and skills we seek to instill our students – qualities that will serve them well in all aspects of their lives. Our 2 spacious studios are in the historic Oddfellows Hall, which we refer to as the “Blue Heron Education Center”. We are currently working to update our facility to have better air circulation for when we are permitted to move indoors, depending on phase 3 or 4 restrictions and requirements around dance studios. In the meantime, all classes will be conducted online via Zoom.

Fall dance classes are now open for registration!

*NEW* Contemporary Dance ONLINE Class

NEW CLASS!
Contemporary Dance ONLINE Class
Mondays, 5:45- 6:45pm
Instructor: Madeline Morser
Location: Online via Zoom

Contemporary dance is usually considered an umbrella term for the meshing of ballet, jazz, modern, and lyrical. Specific choreography varies with each instructor, but often focuses on individual dancer interpretation rhythm, and unexpected transition. This class encompasses a warm up focusing on syncopation and timing, floor work, and classical alignment, followed by challenging phrase-work that pushes the dancers ability to memorize and increase the speed of their dancing.

Beginning/Intermediate Modern ONLINE Class

Beginning/Intermediate Modern ONLINE CLASS
Ages: 10+
Wednesdays, 4:30-5:30pm
Instructor: Madeline Morser
Location: Online via Zoom

Madeline's modern class will be a combination of classical form combining technical aspects from Graham, Limon, and Taylor techniques, while also incorporating an introduction to the growing floor work focus of the Seattle dance community. Class will begin by moving in and out of the floor as a warm up and continued training in both classical and novel modern dance techniques. The second half of class will focus on both across the floor progressions, and phrase work challenging the dancer's understanding of timing and use of the floor.
