© 2020 The Lynden School of Dance & Gymnastics

Co4IT Limited

Open to children aged 10 years and over.


A 90-minute class including technique strengthening exercises, right through to stylistic performance phrases.  Using the “release” technique as a basis, students can explore their own expression in their movement whilst being challenged in a fun and energetic class.


Lynden is currently one of very few dance schools in the South to offer graded examinations in Contemporary Dance.  We follow the UK Dance & Artistic Acrobatics syllabus which is a relatively new dance association that has been created by professionals.  It is an inspiring syllabus infusing new techniques that embody old traditions, encouraging individuality and trains students to become the best that they can be.


There are many methods to training in contemporary dance. Through following the course many of the components from these methods are taught - Release, fall and recovery, direction changes, isolations, core strengthening, connecting with the floor and improvisation.


Each Grade has been designed to build a solid technique from set exercises to enable students to dance new, challenging and inspiring choreography.


As the UK’s most up-coming dance style used by most choreographers, contemporary dance training is a major component that all dancers should attain for their future.


Examinations are encouraged but are not mandatory and students can progress to higher levels without taking them.
