Contemporary classes at Studio K will aid you in the discovery of your bodies movement ability, creating a comfortable and safe environment for you to explore and express freely.

All of these techniques use initiation from one part of the body which effects another. Choreography will be a mix of fluid, more lyrical movement all the way through to the more abstract and staccato movement to provide variety.
