Contemporary Dance is an expressive form of dance that combines elements from ballet, floorwork and fluid movements. It invites participants to be creative and explore movement more freely so experience of dance styles isn’t necessary. For any children who are creative or physical contemporary dance is a fun and lively class that encourages them to challenge themselves in new ways as well as develop coordination and rhythm.
