Contemporary

Ages: Teenagers and Adults | Music: Various Music | Level: Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced

Contemporary is the result of a revolution that gave each one of us the chance to dance without boundaries. Our journey will start with floorwork exercises where we go back to our roots, then we’ll go through a combination of classical and modern sequences to build strength and control, so we are ready for the improvisational trip where we explore how our bodies can move and what stories we want to tell. Contemporary is about finding inspiration in the smallest details whether it’s birds’ sounds, the colour of the sand, a baby’s scream, and a human’s experience.
