Contemporary by Laura Tham
Contemporary dance is a more relaxed, free style of dance and encourages dancers to use their emotions to enhance personal expression. The class also helps in building core strength, flexibility and stamina. This gives an essential awareness of the use of breath whilst dancing that may aid in other genres of dance as well.
