What is it?
Contemporary is a genre of dance that is connected to ballet and modern dance and emerged in the 1950s. This class is brilliant for budding contemporary dance students who would like to develop performance skills. You will develop your Contemporary dance technique whether you’re a complete beginner or have done some dance before.

This class begins with some warm-up and technique exercises which focus on stability and gaining a general understanding of Contemporary dance. You will also have the opportunity to do some choreographic work, either working towards a performance or just exploring movement in a fun and creative way.

Who is it for?
Anyone aged 12-17, all levels and abilities welcome.

What should I wear?
Comfortable clothing, socks

What should I bring?
Bottle of water
