North London Dance Centre offers contemporary dance classes for our senior level students starting at the Grade 3 level. Our staff teach a blend of various modern styles based on their personal background, drawing from the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing (ISTD) syllabus, Limon, Graham, Horton, Cunningham, Freestyle, Contemporary and Lyrical. Modern offers a freedom of movement exploring themes, shapes, rhythms, energy, space, and performance.
Contemporary dance is characterized by the use of the floor and working with gravity, thus dancing in bare feet is important to retain the sense of contact, and feel energy from the floor. Ballet and Modern training complement each other beautifully, so we encourage our students to study both. Class enrollment for all of our modern classes is limited to a maximum of 12 dancers to ensure adequate individual attention is provided to each dancer. All modern students perform in both our December and June performances.
