Our Contemporary Classes focus on various Contemporary based techniques such as Jazz, Cummingham, Graham and touches of Ballet. Learn to Pirouettes & Fan kicks alongside Release and floor Techniques to become an all rounded, confident dancer. 

CDS Lyrical Dance Classes 

Lyrical Dance is a combination of Jazz and Contemporary techniques to create a story or a setting. The choreography will usually follow or highlight the lyrics, also drawing the emotion from the song or track and hence portraying this to an audience. 

The performance of a lyrical dance will consist of fluidity, grace and most importantly, passion. Find that drive from the inside and connect with your emotions to raise awareness or to send a message to your audience.
