Contemporary & Lyrical


Contemporary classes so popular as they are the ultimate blend of technique & expression for our students. Each term our module explores a musical/topical reference so that our students can explore the style to develop their own style for future projects. Our contemporary classes encourage technical strength whilst incorporating unique body movements usually with unpredictable changes in rhythm, speed, and direction.

Contemporary is an exciting program it draws an emotional response to successfully bring the dance to life. Imagine the scope for your child explore uniqueness within the frame of our Contemporary Dance Program.

Lyrical class starts with a warm-up and progresses into techniques that draw from a classical base but in a very modern and interesting form. Floor work can feature strongly in this class and this requires control and strength to sustain a choreographed ‘moment’. The movements build to intertwine to reflect the music’s lyrics, mood or sentiment.

Lyrical choreography encourages self-expression and it is a wonderful program to develop confidence and stage presence as a Lyrical class encourages each student to use their own unique interpretation.
