Contemporary Dance Classes

Contemporary dance is a style of dance that has the power and technique of ballet, with freer expression and bold movements. It is a dance style created from a combination of classical, modern, and jazz styles.

DSCF4718The technique in contemporary dance tends to combine the strong and controlled legwork of ballet with modern dance’s stress on the torso, and also employs contract-release, floor work, fall and recovery, and improvisation characteristic of modern dance.

It has evolved as a massively popular style featuring in the latest music videos and renowned international dance competitions like ‘So You Think You Can Dance’.

The rebellious form of contemporary dance has limitless possibilities where creativity comes first and traditional rules are often broken. It offers a sense of freedom connecting the mind and body through movement.

DSCF4699Panorama Dance has been teaching dance in Surrey for over 35 years. Our qualified, experienced and friendly staff make our contemporary dance classes an enjoyable experience for our students. In fact a lot of the students cannot wait to come back to dance.

Contemporary dance is offered to the more advanced students that have a solid ballet foundation.

    About Panorama School of Dance

    Panorama School of Dance has been teaching children to dance in Surrey and Delta for over 30 years. Our first students are now coming back with their own children! This is an amazing sight to see and a testament to the unique experience that these young mothers remember from their childhood.

    Panorama not only teaches children how to dance, but promotes personal development, poise, self-confidence, health and fitness. Throughout the years we have grown from a small local church studio with a dozen students to a dance school with 2 locations including 6 studios and over 500 families. Through this growth, the personal touch has not been lost.
