Contemporary dance allows the students to experience a freedom of movement quite different from any other style.
Our open classes assure every class is fresh and exciting and tailored to our three levels; Beginners, Intermediate, and seniors. Each class begins with a warm-up, across the floor movement, and finishes with choreography. In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet and jazz, powerful allegro (Jumps), floor work, stress on the torso with contract-release, controlled and uncontrolled movement with fall and recovery, and freedom of improvisation movement.
Contemporary is very free in its diverse styles of movement; from grounded, African inspired, athletic, harsh, to smooth, classically controlled, to commercialised modern-inspired movement. This diversity of movement within the class inspires, excites and keeps every class fun whilst challenging the students to find body awareness through exploring unusual shapes and changing dynamics.
