Our Contemporary classes are suitable with those with no experience or very little dance background. It is a beautiful dance form known to express our inner emotions. It derives from all types of dance styles such as lyrical, jazz, modern and classical ballet. Our teachers aim to introduce to you the beautiful fluidity and modernity of Contemporary Dance, through the use of elevations, floor work, travelling and all types of movement which require you to use muscles you never knew existed before! Not only is it an artistic unique style of dance it is also a great way to express our inner emotions. Its versatility allows it to be a form where we can push our boundaries and reach new innovative ideas of what dance is and who can dance. It aims to work alongside our natural alignments of our bodies. Contemporary Dance is often appealing to those who seek dance that differs from the rigid structure of ballet or the urban roughage of hip hop, making it safe and accessible for everyone and beginners.

Introduction to Pointe
Our 'Introduction to Pointe' class is suitable for experienced ballet dancers, who have never done pointe before.

All of our level 2 and 3 students who have stronger dance technique can join, as it requires strong muscles to hold your whole body weight and prevent injuries.
