Program Description

Contemporary Dance Foundation

Cambridge School of Visual & Performing Arts

Contemporary Dance

One of the reasons contemporary dance is so popular is because of its diversity and flexibility. Building on 20th Century and modern dance styles, it is constantly changing and developing as new trends emerge.

A very personalised style and approach to dance, contemporary dance explores the connection between mind and body, using natural energy along with strong knowledge of technique, vocabulary, and repertoire. Contemporary dancers can come from any training background, making it very accessible to classical ballet dancers and break dancers alike. Dance styles and well-known movement techniques are mixed with body training, such as yoga, pilates, and conditioning.

On our Contemporary Dance Foundation, our goal is to help you grow and progress as both a performer and potential director of dance performance. You will learn about multiple dance styles, but perhaps more importantly develop as an individual – physically, emotionally and intellectually. Our work is designed to improve confidence, performance, physical and mental stamina, openness, focus, willingness to explore and experiment, intuition and instinct, self-discipline and motivation.

The Award

At the end the year, upon successful completion, you will be awarded the UAL Level 3 Extended Diploma in Performing and Production Arts - Dance, which attracts 36, 60 and 84 UCAS tariff points for pass, merit and distinction grades respectively.
