Contemporary classes are offered to students from approximately 9 years old. A background in ballet or jazz is not needed for contemporary dance. Students are taught non-syllabus work which now can lead towards sitting a NZAMD medal test and/or JDNZ medal exam.

In 2015, JDNZ (Jazz Dance New Zealand) introduced Contemporary medal exams and we will be offering these for our students this year.

With each class the teacher will compile work to suit the level of the students.

Although students may spend more than a year or so in on “level” (e.g. Beginner) the work the teacher prepares will be to the level that our students require.
