What is creative contemporary dance?


Contemporary is a popular style of dance taught and performed all around the world. It was originally influenced by classical ballet, modern, and jazz but has since borrowed ideas from many other styles making it varied and experimental. Contemporary dance can be used to tell a story or it can be abstract and focused on different ways of moving and the human body - it is therefore a very creative art form.

What should I wear to class?


Tight-fitted clothing that you are comfortable in and can move freely in - what you would normally wear for physical activities. We normally dance in bare feet for contemporary. You may wish to purchase ballet shoes for ballet.

Can I still join in if I'm late?


We recommend all students log in to Zoom in plenty of time before the class starts. It is important for all participants to be present for the warm up section of class, if this is missed the participant will not be able to join.
