This course will focus on contemporary dance technique with an emphasis on musicality, rhythm and space through the exploration of movement possibilities.
Each lesson will start with a quick warm-up, continue with dance combinations that will move through space and end with the learning of contemporary choreography.
The course is open to anyone who has some dance experience and is interested in learning contemporary dance technique and performance skills while having fun.
