Contemporary Dance Classes

Designed to increase flexibility balance and poise, this expressive form of dance encourages its participants to connect emotionally to movement. 

Our classes begin with a thorough warm up, before leading into short travelling sequences to help engage with the space and further prepare the body. Stephen employs a variety of techniques when teaching contemporary dance choreography, sometimes you will be encouraged to work in pairs or small groups as well as working individually.

Specially devised material will encourage technical development, helping to build stamina, body awareness and breath control. Throughout the term, participants will have the opportunity to work together collectively, sometimes creating their own material through improvisation as well as learning floor work and the principles of fall and recovery. 

Expect a varied range of styles over the term and experience an uplifting feeling of release through this lyrical dance form.
