Dance it Out: Intro to Contemporary

Wednesday | 6:00pm - 7:00pm | | £6 / £5 concs

This is an online class delivered via Zoom

Do you prefer to dance like nobody’s watching only when nobody is watching? Did you love to dance as a child but haven’t danced since? Do you dance at parties or in front of your bedroom mirror but have never been to a class? Would you love to come to a class but worry about being surrounded by dancers with much more experience?

If in doubt, DANCE IT OUT! If any of the above apply, this class is for YOU!

Each week try out a new taster class in the comfort of your own home.

Intro to Contemporary

This class will give an insight into release based contemporary dance. Besides enjoying being in our bodies and taking pleasure from moving with clarity and attention to details, this class will focus on the principles of breath, flow, joint articulation and exploring different pathways through the body and through space. We will pay attention to working with different dynamics and how we can access a wide range of qualities, sensations and textures in the body.

This class is led by Bettina Carpi (Company Carpi)
