About Contemporary Beginners with Sarah Miller

Classes start on Wed 17th April 2024 and run until Wed 3rd July 2024 (excluding Wed 29th May due to half term)

Work with increased physicality and develop a more dynamic approach to movement.

This class is designed to build upon the foundations of our introduction course, allowing you to expand your skills and explore the art of Contemporary dance even further.

Our progressive approach is influenced by the techniques of Cunningham and release-based Contemporary styles. Cunningham technique emphasises the movement of the spine through curves, tilts, twists, and arches. Incorporation of Release technique encourages flowing movements that focus on breath.

Dance artist, Sarah Miller will guide you through the class, helping you develop your skills and technique, accompanied by live music by James Taylor. You will have the opportunity to explore your own styles and approach to movement through a choreographed phrase that will be taught in class.
