About Contemporary Dance:

Contemporary dance was developed in the early 20th century and presented an alternate form of expression to the upright and highly structured technique of Classical Ballet. Focusing instead on fluidity and ease of movement, the body’s energy and natural lines, a new mode of self-expression in dance was born.

No Venue

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
