Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modern, jazz, lyrical and classical ballet. Contemporary dance classes are a great way to exercise. The improvised nature of contemporary dancing involves fluidity of movement, whilst minimizing the physical stress normally caused by dancing. This style of dance allows you to translate meaning through movement and really allows you to interpret the music.

The purpose of this course is to help dancers to focus and to be fully aware of their body especially on the limitations and capabilities. This can help to create body awareness especially in your daily activities. The workshop will enable individuals to connect physically and mentally.

 

By learning the choreography, dancers will be able to learn to express themselves, plus they get to exercise their mental strength by remembering the sequences. This workshop will be able to help dancers to train their musical timings as well.

She took up ballet the age of 8 years old, and completed RAD grade 1-8. Her role model is her late uncle GPH Herwasto; and his love for dance has inspired her to pursue dance professionally.

She fell in love with contemporary dance while studying in LA SALLE. She gained a lot of experiences while working with different choreographers; and these has helped her to become a versatile dancer. Atiah plans to continue her Masters in future.
