Spring, jump and move across the floor with contemporary dance.

This course is aimed at complete beginners and offers an introduction to contemporary dance in an encouraging and laid-back group setting, with opportunities for creative development of your own style. The live music by Oliver Davies will help inspire your movement throughout the class.
