Cost: £6

  • Tuesday 6:15 pm (1hr)


    Term dates: w/c 4th Sept - w/c 11th Dec 2023

A beginners/improvers level contemporary dance class. It’s a loosely Cunningham based class including influences from other techniques and my own experience. The class is expressive, technical, fast moving and full of performance energy. I work fluidly within the technique aiming to get the most out of every dancer while working within their own individual capabilities. It’s a challenging beginners class, but i guarantee that even those with limited dance experience will leave the class feeling that they have had a great time and surprised at how well they did. I use music that inspires and adds to the performance element of the class.
