Introduction to Dance (Creative Movement and Improvisation)

In 2024 these classes will be lead at three different locations by experienced MADE tutors Risa Ray, Felicity Bott and Rebecca Cannon, each of whom bring their own approach to introducing dance to participants. Creative and improvisational movement is an aspect of mature dancing that is highly sought after for what it offers to physical and social wellbeing as well as maintaining and developing neuroplasticity. In response to growing interest, MADE will build on our long-standing weekly offering by adding two new classes, one each in both New Town and Devonport:

  • Wednesday 12:30 - 1:30pm with Felicity Bott (SOHO Arts Community Hall, South Hobart)
  • Thursday 5.00 - 6.00pm with Risa Ray (Ogilvie Campus, Hobart City High School, New Town)
  • Wednesday 10.00 - 11.00am with Rebecca Cannon (Lifeway Baptist Church Hall, Devonport)
Contemporary Dance Technique 

Felicity and Risa each design their Wednesday and Thursday evening contemporary dance classes to approach intermediate level whilst still being able to accommodate beginners. Participants are encouraged to tackle the class with gusto at their own level.

In Felicity’s classes attendees learn centre, floor and travelling phrases and, on occasion, improvise. There’s a good dose of laughter as well as general conversation about the pleasures of dance aesthetics and function.

Risa’s classes focus on centre and phrase work, with the aim of improving balance, range of movement and flexibility so integral to dance. Along with contemporary dance technique, Risa’s phrase work also reflects her rich background in street dance. This class is a blend of contemporary dance flavours, offering enjoyment and fitness.

  • Wednesday 5.00 - 6.00pm with Felicity Bott (SOHO Arts Community Hall)
  • Wednesday 6:05 - 7:05pm with Felicity Bott (SOHO Arts Community Hall)
  • Thursday 6:05 - 7:05pm with Risa Ray (Ogilvie Campus, Hobart City High School, New Town)
Classical Ballet (Beginner & Intermediate)

Whether a beginner or someone with previous experience of ballet, Lucinda will expertly guide you through discovery of the joy of ballet focussed around the use of the ballet barre. A barre is a stationary handrail that provides support for people during various types of exercise. Barres are used extensively in ballet training and warm up exercises to both introduce and develop balletic skill and style.
