Contemporary Technique Classes

Contemporary Technique Classes with Grace Murdoch

In these classes a variety of contemporary dance techniques are explored and developed across the age groups, led by experienced teacher Grace Murdoch. We start by developing the initial movement skills and modes of exploration with the younger groups, progressing to more challenging advanced techniques at the intermediate level and above. The classes fuse elements of Release, Flying Low, Graham and Cunningham techniques, amongst others. The classes are designed to give all students a strong technical foundation and are a great counterpart to our Saturday Creative Dance sessions, in order to give a well rounded dance training for young people. Although age guidelines are listed below, Grace will make sure each student is in the group most appropriate to their level and experience and this will be on a case by case basis. For more information on Grace Murdoch, Click Here to visit her website.
