“In my opinion this is the best performing arts school in Milton Keynes and it should be recognised as so. My daughter is a pupil at the school and having previously tried other performing arts schools in the area, I can honestly say she has never been happier. She cannot wait to go every week, her confidence has grown, she has learned new skills and above all she has fun. I cannot thank the team at Arts 1 enough for how they have developed her.”

Contemporary is the ‘modern art’ of the dance world. It was initially a reaction to the highly stylised nature of ballet, so where ballet features a lot of symmetry, balancing and light, upward movements, contemporary has a tendency towards the opposite such as asymmetric, falling with momentum and grounded or floor-based movements.
Contemporary dance classes focus on a range of approaches to develop students’ strength, stamina, flexibility and coordination. Alongside taught phrases choreographed to develop an understanding of the style, students will learn choreography as well as developing their technique and performance skills.
Contemporary dance is really an umbrella term for a lot of different techniques and approaches such as Cunningham, Graham, Limon, Release, Flying Low to name a few.
