What is it?
A ballet-focused contemporary class, with new exercises every week and building on a short phrase at the end of class.

Contemporary dance is a term encompassing a variety of techniques and styles closely related to ballet, modern dance, African and jazz dance. Early pioneers straying away from the classical ballet system include Mary Wigman, Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Merce Cunningham. Contemporary acknowledges the presence of the body in space, gravity in relation to the floor and detailed articulation of the spine.

Movement qualities such as fall and suspension, release, rebound, flow can be enjoyed to a variety of music in this class comprising ballet warm up technique exercises into dynamic sequences, which may jump and travel across the floor.

This hour session has a large focus on ballet and contemporary technique which will train the body and build skills. These techniques and skills are absolutely necessary leading up to jumps and lifts to make sure no injuries occur.

Who is it for?
Those who have little or no experience in any dance style.

What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing that allows the body to move. Barefoot, socks or ballet shoes are suitable.

What do I need to bring?
Plenty of water.
