Contemporary Dance

Josie Maidment

Queens’ College Contemporary Dance society is a fabulous way to explore dance without even having to  leave college! Queens’ are very lucky to have profession dancer in residence Adèle Thompson who teaches the society’s classes. Adele studied at Cambridge and London Contemporary Dance, now working as an independent dancer, choreographer and teacher. Dance technique classes are held every Friday during term time in the Fitzpatrick Hall: Beginner – 2.30-4pm and Intermediate/Advanced 4.30-6pm. On Saturdays there is a creative choreography class: 10am – 12.30pm. There is absolutely no membership fee and classes cost just £1 for Queens’ students!

The society holds an annual performance – ‘Sprung’ – at the end of Lent term, offering the opportunity for students to bring their own choreography to a friendly audience. The performance is always very successful and well received.

So why not give it a go – it’s fun, friendly and practically free!
