how odd.

There's a dance studio at the bottom of the hill from the house we hope to rent. It had an ad for adult dance classes starting this fall: modern and ballet, and Pilates classes. I emailed, 'cause hey. The woman who runs the place is professionally trained and stuff, so I'm really very surprised to discover that what is advertised as modern dance class is apparently hip-hop, since that's what she called it when she responded to my email.

And which, okay, yes, hip-hop is certainly modern dance, but it is not modern dance as modern dance is defined in the dance world. Modern dance is what developed out of ballet when people got tired of the extremely regimented movement required by ballet. I would in fact love to take a hip-hop class, but it is *not* what I expected from the term "modern dance". How very strange.
