Instructor: Olly Otley
Performance Studio

Skip, hop and jump your way into class with Leaps and Strides.

NEW for 2018-19: Terms are now 12 weeks long!



The focus of these classes is to introduce new movements to the dancers, to facilitate their creative ideas, and to start to develop technique, posture, and alignment, all while placing an emphasis on self-expression. We explore creative ideas in pairs and groups discovering how to work together. We start to learn new moves through short contemporary dance exercises, sequences, and games to develop and investigate new ways to express ourselves. You’re invited to watch the last class of term.
