COVID UPDATE: Due to regulations, we have currently split the open modern group into junior and senior classes.
The Thursday modern class is a mixed-ability class open to ages 10-18. It is taught by the Principal’s daughter Jennie and is an exploration of the various forms of “modern dance,” including traditional jazz, street dance, contemporary, lyrical and commercial. Each week during the Spring and Summer term, students learn a new dance to a different style, whereas in the Autumn and Winter terms, they work towards performing two dances at the annual show.
The classes run on a Thursday:
5:00pm-5:45pm Junior Modern (Ages 10-13)
6:30pm – 7:15pm Senior Modern (Ages 14-18)
Classes cost £5.00 and must be paid for in advance by the half term, or weekly. Classes which are not attended must still be paid for.
Examples of class routines include learning choreography from music videos:
Like Beyonce’s Formation…
Or Justin Bieber’s Sorry
As well as exploring more theatrical forms such as contemporary and lyrical dance
