This class will take you through the basics of contemporary dance, encouraging students to find freedom and pleasure in movement. Drawing from Release and floorwork techniques, and Contact Improvisation, we will progressively build up the pace and energy. Students will work on strengthening and softening the body, while developing awareness and endurance. This class will focus on the dancer’s relationship with breath, music, and space. Suitable for beginners and intermediate dancers wishing to get back to the basics.

For questions about our classes, please email or call 020 8981 6617 between 10am and 6pm.
