Creative Contemporary for School Year 6

£135 per term

Creative Contemporary for school year 6 is for children interested in learning creative contemporary dance. These fun and invigorating sessions guide young people through the principles of Contemporary technique with a creative approach that also promotes the development of individual expression and choreographic skills.

What will the class actually involve?

Classes start with a warm up which focuses on engaging and strengthening the body; for example foot exercises so we are balanced and articulate, floor work to warm up our spines and swing exercises to prepare our arms. This section of class is called ‘technique’ and also involves short routines and sequences to start working on musicality, timing, coordination and stamina.

The latter section of the class embraces young dancers’ creativity, working in small groups and individually, learning how to create choreography through creative tasks and games and gain confidence in movement.

Open Level - No previous dance/movement experience needed just enthusiasm and comfy clothes.

Please note this is for young dancers aged 10-11 (school year 6).
