Contemporary Dance Technique
Delivered by core faculty and guest teachers, students explore the philosophies and styles of various contemporary dance techniques.
These will be Cunningham, Limon, Release, Flying Low and Fighting Monkey, or a combination of these, with the objective being the development of technical dance and performance skills by focusing on alignment, extension, use of weight, travelling, dynamic phrasing and floor work.
“ I am really passionate about my job because I get to guide and support young people to realise and exceed their aspirations. My aim is to have a positive impact on all the students I teach and tutor. ”
