This class delivers a high energy and fast paced contemporary class inspired by Beyond Repair Dance company Repertoire. The class is less about exercises and more about dynamic travelling across the floor and energetic sequences that are physically very challenging. The work class will focus on flight, powerful lines of the body with the juxtaposition of random gesture which will help build strength and stamina for performance whilst offering a fun atmosphere. The class will at times veer toward the acrobatic while always keeping its contemporary flavour..
