Contemporary Technique (16yrs+)

Open to all abilities, enhance your technique whilst improving and maintaining a high level of stamina, strength and flexibility.

Contemporary dance is not associated with specific dance techniques, but rather with a dance philosophy; people attempt to explore the natural energy and emotions of their bodies to produce dances.

The open class begins with a warm up followed by technique practice and travelling exercises. The class will finish with a sequence incorporating the technique learnt during the session. Contemporary will involve a great deal of playing with balance, floorwork, fall and recovery, and some improvisation.

I have worked in physical theatre, been leading performance companies and teaching contemporary technique for most of my adult life. For Aesop and its Dance to Health programme, I lead fall-prevention classes. I choreograph independently and for DanceEast, and have been leading artists for their district projects in recent years. In 2013 I followed my interest in physiology and anatomy by qualifying as a sports massage therapist.
