Contemporary dance & choreography is a 12-week term incorporating contemporary dance technique, movement exploration and choreography. This course is a perfect introduction to the contemporary dance approach to performance and creativity. You will explore technique and movement as well as learning more about choreographing your own steps!
This two hour session will move from structured warm-up exercises and basic dance skills to guided movement exploration and improvisation. There will be opportunities to learn creative methods from a professional choreographer, as well as develop your own expression through movement.
Join us to learn movement sequences and explore your creativity in a relaxed, supportive beginners environment whilst having fun!
