Contemporary is a beautiful, expressive and graceful style of dance, with its roots from ballet and jazz. Our classes focus on working on technique (a lot based around ballet) and working on new choreography. Our Contemporary dancers are a big feature in our annual show.
It is highly recommended that all our Contemporary dancers also take a ballet class with us as these two styles go together.

"EP DANCE helped me get back into dancing after quitting it for a few years and as it increased my confidence it helped me branch out into other area of performances arts. This encouraged me to pursue acting at uni when I am today"
