moderna dance - welcome!
What's New? Updated 29th December 2012
It's nearly time! Wahoo! Our Xmas Party will be held in our Pirbright venue (but we'd love all our Churt students to attend too!) Sunday 30th Dec complete with complimentary mince pies, truffles, nibbles and soft drinks, a special performance from our cabaret class group who have been working hard in rehearsals and there will be a xmas present for everyone too! We will be having a warm up class at 7.30pm followed by the usual 2 hrs of freestyle. Hope you can make it along to watch your fellow classmates perform!
As a motivational new year gift to all our students Mario and Jules are offering free 15 min dance clinics during freestyle which you can book with us in advance or on the night throughout January. You can use these to ask us for help with anything you would like to work on or to ask our advice on what we recommend to improve your dancing. Think of it as a free mini private lesson!
After our Xmas Party we will be re-opening as follows:

About us - music, dancing, lessons etc.
Music!At Moderna Dance we have come up with a unique blend of music to suit a wide range of tastes. We love variety, so our music is a mix of styles and tempos to spice up your dance experience. We mix contemporary with traditional to give a flavour of old meets new which embodies the eclectic spirit of Moderna Dance. The one thing all the music has in common is that it makes you want to dance! We hope you enjoy our choice of music and are always open to suggestions.
If you'd like to suggest some tunes please contact us!
Dancing! We love fusion so you will often see us mix elements of different dance styles (such as Tango, Salsa, Jive and Blues) into our classes. We feel this gives us greater scope for creativity, interest and expression and enables us to adapt our dance style to different types of music. Interpreting the music is important to us; to something fast and furious we could choose flashy moves with quick turns, lots of dips and tricks, but to a slower romantic song we might favour close hold simple moves and concentrate more on partner connection and subtle body movements. We like to encourage creativity and musicality in our students but above all we like you to have fun.
