Contemporary Dance is a fusion of a few styles of dance such as modern, lyrical and ballet with techniques such as graham, Cunningham and release. At RB Arts Academy we offer ID-Dance contemporary syllabus, created by well-known choreographer and performer Ryan Jenkins.
We have classes for 4-16 years and they are graded syllabus lessons, working towards an exam. ID-Dance uses traditional techniques with a mix of modern styles and methods making them unique and current, so it’s fun to learn and fun to dance. The lessons encourage choreography and improvisation. Again some students will be invited to join an Elite Contemporary Group for either Juniors or Seniors who will then compete in local competitions and festivals.
