COVID UPDATE: Due to regulations, we have currently split the open modern group into junior and senior classes. There are currently no available places for either modern class but there is a waiting list which you are welcome to join.
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.
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
