Contemporary Dance was born early in the 20th century and focuses on a freer, less codified form of movement than ballet. Famous dancers and choreographers include: Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Jose Limon, Hofesh Schecter, Akram Khan, Wayne McGregor, Mark Morris and Pina Bausch.
It is an excellent method of exploring movement in a different and more personal way and classes are open to any pupils 11 or over. Weekly classes are held at our studio by Anoushka Charles from In-Sync Dance Company on Thursdays from 5.45pm - 7.00pm, £96 per term.
Modern Jazz dance is the primary genre of dance used in musical theatre and is essential for anyone wishing to work in theatrical dance. It has a technical base derived from ballet but has developed fully into it's own genre with several different styles according to the purpose and the music being used.
Our classes cover many forms of jazz, including musical theatre, lyrical and Fosse. Our teacher Imogen Breen is a professionally trained dancer, teacher and choreographer.
