Class description: A fast-paced contemporary technique class, with new exercises every term and building on a phrase at the end of class. This class provides some challenge for those with experience of contemporary. Contemporary dance is a term encompassing a variety of techniques and styles closely related to ballet, modern dance and jazz dance. Early pioneers straying away from the classical ballet system include 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 upbeat music in this class comprising of in-depth warm up of technique exercises into dynamic sequences, which jump and travel across the floor as well as using evolving floor work.
