taxi4ballet Posted October 4, 2013 Share Posted October 4, 2013 I was wondering whether any one could explain the difference between the various styles of contemporary, as I am rather puzzled by it all. DD has been doing contemporary alongside her classical training for a while now, and has mentioned that she likes the style she learns as part of one associate scheme much more than at another. She has also experienced varying methods at different workshops and residential courses too. I'm asking as she is taking GCSE dance at her academic school, and the teacher there has sent out a letter saying that all the students must attend a weekly contemporary technique class during one lunchtime. Once we'd stopped laughing, dd and I discussed it at length, and we both think that that she doesn't really need to go to this class, but the teacher is insistent! However, I'm concerned about dd having technique corrections at her academic school, especially since the class will be led by a (presumably unqualified) 6th form Dance Prefect. It would be helpful if I understood more about contemporary, so can anyone explain the different styles (Graham, Cunningham etc) please?
