Contemporary (9yrs – Adult)

Contemporary/Modern dance is a dance style that rejects many of the strict rules of classical ballet, focusing instead on the expression of inner feelings. It was created in the mid nineteenth & early twentieth centuries in Germany most notably as a rebellion against classical ballet, emphasizing creativity in choreography and performance. This form of dance is closely linked to other styles of dance and doesn’t rely on fixed moves but develops new & creative forms as well as dynamics including expressions of raw emotion, oppositional moves as well as non-standing moves i.e. floor work. This style is innovative incorporating improvisation technique rooted in free flowing choreography with elements added to challenge each dancer’s growth. Contemporary dance pushes the limits of our form & physique while embracing the freedoms of creativity.
