contemporary dance..?

I want to do contemporary dance but I have very little dance experience. I did tap/jazz/ballet when I was about 6-8. I am now almost 14. Could i still do it?

Also, if you know any contemporary dance studios in the Phoenix, AZ area please share! :)

    There are so many questions like this on Yahoo Answers,

    Noones gonna tell you that you can't do it.

    I think you should start with a ballet/jazz base for at least half a year and then also do contemporary. I think that contemporary/lyrical is the hardest dance genre just because you have to put so much emotion into a complicated dance. So start off with your basics.

    One dance studio in Phoenix, AZ is the Kimberly Lewis School of Dance. It teaches many different styles including contemporary. Try a trial class before you sign up to see if you like the genre and style of teaching.

    Have fun dancing!

George Ballanchine became a brilliant driving ingredient in present day Ballet, bringing on works like Apollo, Prodigal Son, and Serenade. Its strictly ballet technique-based, yet takes the guidelines of Classical Ballet and mixes them up. Its no longer constantly grew to become out and provides in circulate from Jazz and Musical Theatre. i think of what you're finding for is present day Jazz, in spite of the actuality that those are in basic terms words.
