This Junior Contemporary Dance Class is for children (aged 6 and up) who love movement!
This is a creative contemporary dance class for boys, girls, and any child who enjoys dance, movement or acrobatics. Through dance, we aim to foster a sense of community.
Each week the young dancers will, in this nurturing environment, experience the endless creative possibilities of contemporary dance – floorwork, leaps and turns, gestures, going upside down, and a wide range of music, moods and dynamics. Through learning and making choreography, dancers can choose to work towards studio-based performances, such as the Light Years Choreographers dance recital.
Each class includes a warm-up, creative dance games, development of innovative dance material with the young dancers' input, rehearsal and preparation for performances.
Together, young dancers will grow in confidence, strength and ability through practising drills and dance phrases, improvising, and creating. This class nurtures young people into contemporary dance, encouraging all to make their own dances, push their own boundaries and imagination, and collaborate creatively. We also use acrobatic and partnering material, teaching different handstands, cartwheels and movement material that excite young dancers.
Classes are held at Goodman Arts Centre.
