Contemporary dance is developed form classical ballet in the 20th century. The classic techniques and movements are bend into fluent and organic movements from the centre (the belly).
Being conscious about your own body posture and organisation of movement is increased in the warming up. Playing with dynamics, groundwork and directions in the space/room are important themes in these classes.
The class always ends with a choreography, where groundwork, your own ideas and your own style are the central theme.
