Our contemporary dance classes share dance techniques and methods found in ballet, modern dance and post-modern dance.
Contemporary dance is a free-flowing style of dance, with students learning compositional and improvisational techniques. Our teachers deliver a system of training which helps develop dancers expressively and technically, and focus on comprehensive work in warm-up, stretch work, articulation of limbs, turns, travelling and leaps.
We use Australian Teachers of Dance syllabus and our students must be of at least Grade 2 ballet level, be enrolled in one other PSD class, or have a significant amount of relevant dance experience.
