Contemporary - All Levels
Tutor: Megan Smith
This class requires little or no previous experience of contemporary dance. It 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. We finish off with a cool down to relax the body.
What to wear: Anything loose and comfortable – leggings, light joggers, t-shirt, leotard. You will dance barefoot or in socks.
