Contemporary

RSM Contemporary students will experience and learn an array of techniques with Contemporary Dance. Contemporary allows for freedom and expression in dance through the exploration of techniques established by dance pioneers such as Laban, Cunningham, Graham and Brown. Pushing ourselves to our individual limits while embodying our emotion and intention in movement, we explore how movement can change its purpose through elements such as levels, pace, dynamics and resistance.
Our contemporary students often create for themselves a movement that is out of the ordinary, out of their comfort zone and spontaneous. Contemporary dance allows them to become well-rounded dancers and open minded.

Acro

RSM Acro students will combine the dance skills learnt in our main academy seamlessly with acrobatic elements. Our Acro students work weekly on their flexibility, strength and acrobatic tricks to ensure they are in great physical condition and can be challenged.
Acro class is great for those wishing to work on their strength and flexibility as a dancer and performer along with gaining knowledge of learning how to do tricks safely and correctly. Each of our Acro students has their own area they are particularly talented in which makes their group and class work particularly rewarding. Acro students also feature in live performances at our local showcases.

Performers will work on the techniques required to support the integration of Singing, Acting and Dance. Students will learn big musical numbers direct from the West End and Broadway. We will cover a variety of styles and genres so students gain greater knowledge. Theory will be introduced to support understanding and your own performance.
