During the Autumn term 2021, EMDAN are offering a series of contemporary based practical dance classes open to all dance artists across the region. The sessions will run in three blocks of four, led by three passionate, experienced, local dance artists. Classes will offer the opportunity to move together in a safe and supportive environment.

Sarah Butler’s classes will focus on feeling grounded and centred, working through breath and isolation exercises to whole body movement and sequences. Using and building upon floor, standing and traveling work, the class will seek to find differing range and rhythm, exploring space, breath and freedom in body. Sarah encourages individual interpretation and offers differentiated options, particularly for any trick based movements.


Below is a list of all the upcoming classes for the rest of Autumn 2021 taking place on Mondays 7 – 8.30pm.
