Adult Recreation





Our adult recreational program of contemporary dance classes is designed for individuals who want to experience the joy of movement through contemporary dance. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings, and are suitable for dancers aged 16+, with any level of experience (including complete beginners)

If you have a passion (or just a curiosity) for contemporary dance, we invite you to join us to reconnect with ourselves and each other through movement in a stimulating and supportive environment with live music. The class uses technique as a pathway to fluid and powerful physical expression and integrates principals of a variety of contemporary dance practices. Starting with floor work, moving to standing material and eventually progressing to longer travelling phrases, the class integrates the fundamentals of various movement practises using breath, weight, energy, and flexibility.
