About Contemporary Advanced with Stephen Pelton
Classes start on Sat 13 Jan 2024 and run until Sat 30 March 2024 (excluding Sat 17 Feb due to half term)
Break through inhibitions and find new dimensions within dance.
These classes combine Limón-based fundamentals, ballet placement exercises, and yoga-inspired strengthening practices with Stephen's own lyrical and idiosyncratic movement style. As you advance, you'll learn a choreographic sequence that reinforces technical principles and emphasizes movement dynamics and musicality with a live accompaniment by Bobby Demers.
In a relaxed environment with supportive encouragement, Stephen helps unify the group. We recommend you join this class if you have over five years dance experience.
