Our contemporary classes are dynamic, creative and expressive! Learn the foundations of contemporary dance technique and work together to create choreography. Build your confidence in an inspiring and supportive environment, led by professional choreographers. The classes nurture everyone to grow in their creative and technical abilities. 

Our classes are delivered on a Thursday evening in a professional dance studio at Lyric Hammersmith. At the end of term, we present work to friends and family in an informal setting during the summer term we work towards dance festivals and performance opportunities.

The teachers are so sweet and helpful and it's really one of the best dance groups I've been in.

The teacher is excellent! She really helps us and is also very approachable and friendly. 

What I enjoy most about the class if the music and style of dance.
