Embracing the fearless age, eliminating judgment and encouraging all students to look at how movement is placed in space, creating young dance makers. This class is not only about giving the students a sound understanding of traditional contemporary dance technique while having fun. It also propels them to consider how dance works are structured. Allowing each individual the chance to experiment in a class situation. The students have a strong say in what they will learn, whether that be the style of movement or choice of music. At the end of year concert they will perform two dances. One of which they will generate the movement and ideas for and we will craft the dance as a class.

Class consists of

– Contemporary Technique based on Cunningham and Release Technique.

– ‘Tricks’ incorporating acrobatic skills, break dancing and partnering

– Choreography, students generate the movement and choreographic choices.
