I was so excited that modern dance took precedence in the March/April 2008 edition. In high school I explored the techniques of Cunningham, Graham, and Horton and just ate them up. They became staples in my studies. Now, at my dance studio, modern dance is a very popular class. I have found that the kids who take it along with ballet, etc., have much more ease with movement and understand more intrinsically how their bodies work. Once they take a class, the majority of them are hooked.
