Contemporary borrows from jazz, ballet, funk, social dance styles and many modern dance styles of the 20th century. Contemporary dance encourages natural and spontaneous movement and personal interpretation.
It focuses on self-expression, awareness of space and body movement, use of body weight, efficiency of muscle use and safe body alignment. Classes start with a comprehensive warm-up and gradually build up more elaborate dance routines.

An optional extra for students to participate in. We offer jazz, tap and contemporary exams under the CSTD and ballet exams under the RAD. Exams are a great way for students to set themselves goals and receive constructive notes on their dancing technique and presentation.
