Open Level Contemporary Dance Class | Tuesday 5.15-6.45

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.

Limited slots with special rates for professional performing artists. Please email to enquire. berniceleelly@gmail.com

Junior Dance Company Class | Thursday 4.30-6.30

Junior Dance – a creative contemporary kids dance class for boys and girls, an environment for young people who have shown an interest in dance, movement or acrobatics.

Each week the students Junior Dance Company will, in this nurturing environment, experience the endless creative possibilities of contemporary dance – floorwork, leaps and turns, gestures, going upside down. Through learning and making choreography, classes will be working towards studio-based performances.

The session is two hours long and includes a warm-up, creative dance games, development of dance material with the input of the students, rehearsal and preparation for performances.

Performances are optional, according to the schedule of students. The main focus is to nurture the young students into contemporary dance, allowing one and all to have input in the choreography material, thus encouraging their creative confidence, enabling their own dance to be shown and shared. In this class we also use acrobatic and partnering material, teaching different handstands, cartwheels and movement material that excite children.
