Rose Philpott
TAPAC class

Enjoy the exhilaration that comes from dancing through space with ease and confidence! These contemporary dance classes focus on building physical and social confidence...

Floor work, phrases, improvisation and choreographic skills are built on each week, enabling students to explore their own movement style and creativity.

Rose brings her own personal movement vocabularies and choreographic style, whilst teaching well-respected internationally-influenced techniques with a special New Zealand flavour.

Some classes during the term may be covered by a guest/co-tutor.

COVID UPDATE (1 Sep 2021) : This class will be held via pre-recorded video tutorials combined with shorter online Zoom sessions on Saturday morning.

We are planning to hold make-up classes for the classes missed in the first few weeks of Level 4 lockdown. If ongoing Covid restrictions mean we are not able to hold these make-up classes, you will be refunded for classes not held.
