Adults Character Dance  

Explore the world of Dance.
 
1.5 hour class

Designed to explore different cultures, Character dance is a specific subdivision of classical dance. It is the stylized representation of a traditional folk or nation dance, mostly from European countries, and uses movements and music that have been adapted for the theatre. Character dance is integral to most classical ballet repertoire and can be seen in all of the great full-length ballets. Danced usually in heeled shoes, these classes will start at the barre similar to a ballet class and finish in the centre where traditional dancers will be learnt. We recommend one-year prior experience or taking our beginners ballet programme first.

Adults Contemporary 

Dance 

Expand the way you move. 
 
1 hour class

Contemporary dance draws on many styles, getting you moving in ways you have only dreamed. 

It adopts concepts from techniques such as Graham, Cunningham, Horton and Alexander Technique, and blends them with current dance trends. Once we know the rules, we are able to ‘break’ / ‘morph’ them, to create a greater vocabulary that extends our range of movement, quality and artistry. 

We recommend at least one year prior experience or taking our beginners Ballet programme first.
