The contemporary class has a heavy emphasis on connection between the body and mind where dancers are encouraged to explore and discover their inner emotions through movement while pushing their bodies beyond traditional movement.
The classes could often be exploring balances, weight energy, floor work, rolling, falling and recovery, flexibility and range of motion, jumping through space and physical creative phrasing plus improvisation. The use of breath, postures, mind and body connections is a large part of the structure of each class to develop the dancers body awareness and natural impulses which are valuable tools for the developing dancer.
