Youth Contemporary classes are all about movement, energy and fun, specifically crafted for young people aged 11 – 18! With influences from Cunningham, Graham and Limon, Youth Contemporary introduces participants to contemporary dance technique whilst also developing their choreographic skills, movement vocabulary and expression. Expect lots of travelling across the studio and moving energetically performing phrases. Level 1 open to beginners, Level 2 for more experienced contemporary dancers.
