Contemporary

This class requires little or no previous experience of contemporary dance. Taught by Elizabeth Foster, this is an accessible class with an emphasis on expression and fun.

The class draws on release-based technique, which relies on the clear use of strength exploring momentum, gravity and the use of weight. This class starts off with a warm up to increase the circulation around the body. We then move on to technical exercises that improve posture, core strength, suppleness and all round fitness. This is then followed with an exciting, new routine. The class is finished off with a cool down to relax the body.
