Open Level Contemporary Dance Class | Monday 5.15-6.45 PM (Changes to Wednesdays from mid-July)
If you’re looking for a contemporary dance experience in a supportive environment that will challenge you at your own pace, a love for kinesthetic flow and physical creativity – this will be the right class for you.
Our contemporary dance classes get you moving, going upside down, falling off balance, and back in control again. Designed to get you in touch with your own groove, you will strengthen your body awareness by understanding movement patterns, challenging coordination skills and musicality, and getting to move more freely.
These contemporary dance classes will challenge your core, your body’s dynamic alignment, and increase the articulation of your spine, hands, and feet. Besides increasing your movement range, dancing increases your expressivity through honing physical precision, mental focus and spatial/collective awareness. It is also, fundamentally, great fun!
The contemporary dance classes are held at an open level, developing strength, mind-body connection and energy efficiency for people and dancers at every stage.
