Using ballet technique as the foundation, our contemporary classes build strong core, allowing the torso to move more freely in a variety of different ways. Contemporary dance utilises the strong and controlled legwork of ballet yet allows the students to relax through the upper body and arm lines. Versatility and improvisation are nurtured though a variety of music focusing on floorwork and the sense of gravity through movements.

Students wishing to participate in contemporary must attend a minimum of 2 RAD ballet classes.
