Technique / Style 


Class description

This is a physical Contemporary Class, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance/stamina and commitment throughout the session, improvisation will also be explored as part of self-development.

The significant factors for the workshop are to develop the dancers' creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, musicality and most importantly an intention/honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the session.

Our style has been inspired and developed from working with the likes of Akram Khan (fusion of Kathak and Contemporary Dance), Retina Dance Company (Release and Contact Work), Gregory Maqoma (Afro-Fusion Dance) and Henri Oguike (Classical Contemporary Dance based on Forsythe and Cunningham techniques).

Additional notes

This class will be taught by either Kristina and Sadé each week. 

Artist’s biography

Alleyne Dance
and Sadé Alleyne presents Alleyne Dance, an internationally touring, innovative, modern, multi-disciplined dance company based in London. Kristina and Sadé have worked with many companies across the years and trained in many genres of dance including traditional African dance, Hip Hop, Kathak, Latin and Circus Skills. We were originally Athlete’s and trained professionally in London. Those experiences have helped mould our dynamic, fast, physical dance style and technique. We teach as a duo. From our different journeys/experiences as dance artist we now fuse our strengths together. Our skills moulds together to create a successful and knowledgeable environment to lead the sessions. As we are sisters (twins) we click as a duo and believe that we can give each participant double the attention, knowledge, advice and inspiration during the sessions.

The significant factors for workshops or creation period’s is to create a process which will help develop the individuals creative mind, generate passion, determination, strength, and most Importantly an intention/ belief in whatever they decide to do. We teach and create regularly at many schools, communities, youth and professional companies/ artist and for small projects across the world, leading taster sessions, creative/ improvisation sessions and choreograph small pieces.

We have also directed modelling shoots, dance for camera, community outdoor projects and have also set up youth companies to continue the work we created. In every session or creative class we really push the participants and give them a sense of professionalism and generate awareness of their bodies and to just simply generate passion and motivation in the art. We work with a variety of ages, levels and abilities.
