Contemporary dance

Just wondered how important it is for a DC to cover Contemporary dance during their training. DD is Year 10 and wants a career in dance, probably from 18. Her small local dance school do not cover contemporary, and neither does her associate course on a regular basis. We are currently covering different associate courses which cover Contemporary as well as ballet or instead of. If she has been successful in their auditions it will be a difficult call to decide where she should focus, especially with her GCSE year approaching and probably exams in Tap and Advanced 1 Ballet next term. Just wondering if it will hamper her in auditions at 18 if most auditionees have done regular Contemporary lessons.

There does seem to be a greater crossover between ballet and contemporary in choreographic terms these days so I would say that if she can fit a class in somehow it can only be beneficial in the end. It can also be a nice change from ballet for some.

My dd had done very little contemporary before going at 16. Summer schools and an hour a week for six months before she went. Same as you our dance school didnt cover it but now she loves it and has settled into the style.
