What is it?
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.

Many movements involve fall and suspension, transitions to and from the floor and dynamic choreography on the floor. This class will provide an in-depth focus on floor work and transitions, helping you to develop confidence and experience in working on the floor. This will greatly support your practice in our other Contemporary classes.

Who is it for?
Anyone who would like to develop their Contemporary skills.

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.
