Modern dance lessons

This is a fresh syllabus designed by Lucy Thynne for children to gain foundations and experience in styles of dance currently seen performed professionally.

With a basis of contemporary technique to promote healthy use of spine, flexibility and core stability, the children learn control alignment and body awareness.

Elements of jazz and funk are used in body isolations and technical steps, while street and urban dance influences feed into floor work and allow variations in modern style.

Moments of physical theatre and mime are incorporated to enhance performance technique.

Exams are not offered in our Modern classes.
