Contemporary dance is an expressive style of dance that combines lots of different dance styles.

Open Contemporary

Our open contemporary sessions at Rubicon are perfect for anyone who wants to give contemporary dance a go or work on their overall dance technique.

We have two open contemporary sessions for children and young people, the first for ages 11–13 and the second for ages 14–16. Participants are taught through technique and choreography, whilst having the opportunity to explore the style of contemporary through their own creativity. No previous dance experience is needed, just come along and have fun!

Rubicon’s Flagship Contemporary Dance Group

Rubicon’s Flagship Contemporary Dance Group are one of Rubicon’s five performance-focussed groups working towards high profile local and national performances throughout the year. Entrance to the group is by annual audition and the programme runs from September to July. Previous dance experience is not essential, but a desire to dance and a commitment to classes, rehearsals and performances are paramount. 

Rubicon’s Flagship Contemporary Dance Group sessions have a strong emphasis on developing body awareness, refining contemporary technique and enhancing performance skills. 

"I decided to audition for the flagship contemporary group [...] and it has really pushed me to be a better dancer overall." - Lelia, Flagship Contemporary Dancer
