Contemporary dance is a dance performance genre that developed during the mid twentieth century. Originally informed by and borrowing from classical, modern, and jazz styles, it has since come to incorporate elements from many other different styles of dance.
In terms of the focus of its technique, contemporary dance tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance's stress on the torso, and also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance.
These classes are ideal if you have never danced this style before (or if you've never danced at all). These classes are a true introduction to the basic techniques of the style.
This beginner / improver class works on choreography to various pieces of music, and the class works at the level of the group – so it takes as long as you need. The perfect way to begin dancing, have fun and make new friends.
