Are you interested in learning the techniques of Contemporary dance?
Want to build up your technical dance training, confidence and learn dance that encourages individuality? Discover your hidden talents as choreographer and embrace your expressive and creative ideas in a safe and friendly atmosphere.
Our classes are accessible to mixed abilities and can be a good start for any young dancer or a great platform to develop your existing skills.
What will the class actually involve?
Teachers divide class into two sections. They start by leading a warm up and technique class which involves a series of exercises and movement phrases designed to improve strength, coordination, alignment, flexibility and musicality.
The latter section of the class embraces your creativity, you’ll work in small groups and individually, learning how to create choreography through creative tasks and games and begin to refine your own style.
Do I need any particular skills or experience to take part?
Enthusiasm and being ready to try something new – you will be experimenting with a range of tasks and exercises. Some experience and basic dance or similar skills are useful but not essential.
Please note this is for participants aged 15-16 years (school year 11).
