Contemporary dance is a captivating and expressive form of movement that combines lyrical, jazz, and ballet, creating a unique and modern artistic experience. It encourages dancers to explore their creativity, individuality, and emotions through fluid movements, flexibility, and improvisation.

In contemporary dance classes, your child will learn a wide range of techniques such as floor work, release technique, and partnering exercises. They will develop strength, flexibility, coordination, and body awareness while also honing their improvisational skills and musicality.
