hybrid summer class for adults – online & outdoors contemporary dance :)

Finally, a new way to try and ‘make it work’ and offer you a way to dance and enjoy the sunshine – if we have it.

you can now join me online (by default) from home whatever the weather, for a level 1/2 contemporary dance class for adults. Whenever sun is forecast – you can join me outdoors in the park, from where I will also zoom the class to your home!

THURSDAYS 7-8pm ONLINE – come rain or shine – from home or from outdoors – with option to join me OUTDOORS if sunshine is forecast – for a safely distanced, group class in the park.

Contemporary dance a mixture of Laban and Limon style – we will focus on exploring swings, balances, turns and play with improv scores and have some fun moving even in small spaces! (perfect for beginner and intermediate level).

Let’s do this! Let’s find that feeling of freedom in movement.
