Classes for Adults

Contemporary Dance

Level 1/2 Beginners / Improvers

Time to start breathing, moving, dancing again!

If you like to attain the basics of contemporary dance, improve technically, get a feeling for flowing from balance to fall, from standing to rolling and coming up with ease, if you would like to learn short dynamic combinations, improvise and work in contact, and gain confidence to change and create your own twist on the material, then this is the class for you.

To me dancing feels like I am alive, flying and free. Find new ways to express yourself and move through space. Learn combinations and technical exercises, find your balance, off-balance, fall and recover, spiral, turn, jump and fly. What is it that moves us in life? Be encouraged to find your own movements, and change and develop a combination to make it your own. Together we improve our awareness, control, coordination, balance, strength, flexibility and creativity. Feel ready for almost anything!

The Level 1/2 Beginners / Improvers  classes are open to men and women of all abilities. All you need is a joy of moving and courage to try out new things!
