A creative, interpretive and free-flowing style combining both ballet and jazz technique to produce beautiful and expressive routines. The style has been popularised by programs such as “So You Think You Can Dance”, and features narrative or thematic choreography, requiring dancers to express emotions and incorporate them into their performances. Contemporary dance is a great accompaniment to Ballet dancers as it teaches dancers how to use ballet techniques to extract meaning from dances.
This is perfect for Beginners who are new to Contemporary or even to dance itself. You will not only be taught dance techniques to help you to grow and develop as a dancer, but you will also learn combinations and routines so you get the full dance experience. More advanced dancers should enrol in our Intermediate/Advanced class for more advanced technique and choreography.
