Contemporary DanceContemporary

Examinations from Introductory to Level Six plus Solo Performance Diploma.

Choreographed by Ann Dewey, the NZAMD Contemporary syllabus has grown steadily as teachers recognize its value. It is especially popular in ballet studios, often called the ‘yoga for dancers’.


Teaching students to understand the concepts of contemporary movement such as weight, flow, momentum, and the use of gravity, they continue to enjoy a sense of dance while focusing on freedom of movement and spatial awareness.


Introductory is aimed at students of about 9 to 10 years of age.

New Dances for all levels are now in production and will be available for all Teaching Members late in 2015.


The NZAMD Medal Awards allow students to perform in front of a friendly audience in a fun and non-judgmental atmosphere. Click here for more information.
