CONTEMPORARY

 Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres

including modernjazzlyrical and classical ballet.

Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements.

This style is introduced into ballet classes at major levels. This style incorporates all your dance techniques with

an emphasis on an expressive and free dance style.

CLASSES

Contemporary is incorporated into major TDI ballet classes. Exams are encouraged but not compulsory for these classes.

Bronze, Silver and Golden Levels for pupils from Pre Elementary Ballet/ Jazz.

In Term 1 contemporary is offered as an extra class for pupils choosing to participate in this style in our production.

OPEN JUNIOR CONTEMPORARY

This class is offered for pupils from 9 years old with a minimum of 2 years of ballet/ jazz background.

Classes work towards building dance-specific strength, flexibility and co-ordination. In a supportive environment, participants will be encouraged to find a free and full-bodied approach to moving. The class will explore a range of technical principles such as connectivity, using breath to release tension and finding efficiency whilst moving into and out of the floor. There will be a progression towards expansive travelling phrases focusing on movement quality, musicality and performance. Overall, these classes are inclusive and energetic with a focus on fun and the enjoyment of moving together. 

In Term 1 contemporary is offered as an extra class for pupils choosing to participate in this style in our production.

 

OPEN SENIOR CONTEMPORARY

This class centres around improving efficiency and fluidity when moving in and out of the floor. Working with both improvisation and set material, we will explore the organisation of weight and movement patterns that serve to address coordination issues and improve dynamic potential.
