Class Description

EDIFICE’s unique combination of ballroom and contemporary makes it different from any other company working in the UK, creating partner work that combines the speed, passion and connection of ballroom, with the fluidity, freedom and connection of contemporary dance.


A dynamic class working through  a hybrid practice of ballroom and contemporary. The class looks to find the articulation of the spine and pelvis through actions from Latin dance, and bring these principles into finding a 3-dimensional, sinuous contemporary dance language. Offering a  rare technical understanding to partnering in dance. Working with Contemporary and Ballroom principles we teach dancers how to understand, sense, support and lead other dancers.  We work to understand chains of articulation the body, levels of weight transfer, how to create change of speed and direction in the body and how to create elasticity in connection. This is truly a unique class and an asset to any contemporary dancer.
