Modern Theatre dance is a rhythmic dance style which originated in America before travelling to the rest of the world. It is often seen on the stages of musical productions and is known for its theatrical qualities. The style uses travelling steps, high kicks, leaps and turns which all need strength and flexibility. This is a highly energetic dance style.

At SDSD Modern is started on a small scale in the Rhythmic Rascals classes and the Pre Primary Class where the children learn various exercises from the Primary Modern Syllabus and also do lots of free modern work.

When the children move into Primary for Ballet and Tap they start Grade 1 Modern. Modern is fantastic for children's strength as a dancer and is a whole other genre that goes hand in hand with Jazz Dance and Musical Theatre dancing for as they get older.
