Contemporary Dance Classes

Updated on Apr 2, 2015

Contemporary and Jazz Dance forms are artistic dance forms that are hugely popular with today’s youth. Simply put, they are a mixture of modern dance forms with Ballet. They are characterized by moves that involve bent knees, full body swinging actions and a lot of sideways jumps and hops, although they can have varying definitions depending on the dance institute and dance teacher. We at Delhi Dance Academy follow the techniques taught in US dance institutes and our course curriculum is inspired by various international dance schools. From building a dancers body to steps, routines and chances to perform, we endeavor to provide it all. The contemporary dance teachers are among the best in the country.

  • Hi,

    I am good at contemporary, Hip Hop & Lyrical dance which I learned in Bangalore(2years) but due to some personal reason I have to shift to Delhi but have no earning source in Delhi right now.

    So is there any possibility that DDA provides the opportunity where I can learn more advanced dance form of contemporary, Hip Hop & Lyrical dance along with the earning opportunity??

    Would be looking for your positive response so that I can shift myself to Delhi in March itself.

    Thanking you in advance :)

  • hey! i heard about Delhi Dance Academy from a friend and ran through the forms of dances. i’m not a trained dancer but i’m keen on learning contemporary so could i have details regarding the classes? also, i have a concern i wanted to confirm about, i have a ligament problem on my left ankle!, so will that be a hindrance to learn the dance form?

    • Hi Shweta, thanks for writing to us. Contemporary dance will involve a lot of ankle use I’m afraid and with a torn ligament it is not advisable for you. However, if the problem isn’t a torn ligament, but limited movement in the ankle, and as long as it doesn’t cause you pain, you can do it. You can do Salsa, which won’t involve as much ankle use. Call me on 9910222770 to discuss. Regards Arjun PS: Times for contemporary are MWF 7-8pm and 2-3:30pm on Sat and Sun. Fee Rs 2000 per 4 weeks.

  • Hi,

    I feel inhibited when asked to dance, even just move my body on the dance floor. I want to learn dance to be able to let go. Can you recommend a dance form and programme for me? Also I am a professional with very little time.. But I have holidays coming up in the second half of june… Can you suggest a crash course. I must tell you that I am not ambitious about dancing. I only want to learn for the stated purpose and might even be discovered to have two left feet. In case you dont have a programme for me I would understand.

    • Mukta, I’m sorry I saw this too late. We have a massive backlog of comments which I’m determined to clear in the next couple of days. I’m sorry we could not answer your enquiry in time, but in case you’re still interested, then we have Bollywood dance on the weekends and also from 7-8pm on weekdays. That is a good form of dance to get the exposure and confidence that you’re looking for. Best regards Arjun 9910222770

  • hi, im from austria and im visting Delhi from 9 to 16. march and would love to take some danceclasses.. is it possible to come to your studio and take some classes .

    regards klaudia Flür

    • Hello Flur, I’ve seen some of your contemporary videos (great work!) and I think you must try our Bollywood item song dance choreography, which is a very vigourous form of Indian dance, a mix of Bollywood, Indian folk and Indian Classical. We can make a package for you for 4 classes of 1 hour each on the 9th, 11th, 13th and 15th after which we’ll record a video with complete costume and I think that would really add something to your portfolio. That would be 4 private classes @Rs 1000 each plus Rs 500 for the costume. If you want to do contemporary, then that too is possible with Choreographer Vishnu. Either way, please feel free to call me on 9910222770 or call Anant on 9953835088 or just turn up :) Regards, Arjun

    • Teshant, if you like modern hip hop, perhaps try lyrical hip hop or what they call urban hip hop. This is hip hop without overdoing it and I think it also involved curvy motions. It might just be perfect for you. If you’d like to give it a try, please call me on 9910222770 and arrange a trial class for Rs 300. If that’s not right for you either, then you should also try jazz contemporary. Regards Arjun 9910222770

  • hi i knw nothing abt dancing..which is the best dance form i should enroll in???

    • Prachi, if you can follow the beat and if you’re able to dance basic Bollywood, then go for “Jazz Contemporary” as it is a very beautiful and advanced form of dance which will open your body and make you an all rounded dancer. Take a trial class for Rs 300 and see for yourself. The 1pm -2:30pm Sat, Sun batch has just begun and so has the Mon, Wed, Fri 6-7pm batch. It’s a 3 month Level A course that you can begin with and then go further. Regards Arjun 9910222770

  • Hi
    I am 27 years, stay in Gurgaon and very much interested in learning Contemporary dance. Do you have a branch in Gurgaon or somewhere near it? any batches on weekend?


    • Dear Tarun, our Gurgaon center is not functional for an unspecified duration of time. We do however, have contemporary dance classes in our South Delhi center which is very close to MoolChand Metro station. These classes are taken by some very talented teachers. If you think you can travel on Weekends, then please do take a trial class for Rs 299. If you decide to join, then the trial class fee will be adjusted with your course fee. Regards Arjun 9910222770.

    I want to learn Modern jazz. What is the fees for it??

    I will be fine with Weekends?
    Do u guys have any branch near Rohini??
    How can i commute to your studio?

    • Hi Dipti,

      There’s a weekend batch for Jazz and Contemporary that happens from 1 to 2:30 pm every Sat and Sun. You could speak to our instructor Sam (9999732599) who takes these classes.

      We don’t have a branch in Rohini yet. The best way to commute would be to take the Delhi Metro and come to Moolchand Metro Station. You could take a cycle rickshaw from the station and ask for Amar Colony Main Market or Raghunath Temple. We’re right there.

  • Hi, actually I want to learn contemporary dance. I have learnt bharatnatyam for like 10 years but I haven’t practiced for the last 4 years. But I’m really interested in contemporary dance. I would like to know if i can join these classes, and from when?

    • Hey Sugandha! Having learnt a form of dance helps – usually our students who have learnt a classical dance form earlier, are quicker learners. Having said that, our Jazz contemporary dance classes are very different from Indian classical dance classes.

      So yes, sure, you can join our classes. Call us and we’ll let you know when the newest batch is starting. :)

      • actually…the problem is that..i live in ghaziabad..and its difficult for me to come delhi…can u please tell me…help giving some advice..because i really want to learn contemporary…!!!

    • Dear Ritu, yes we have batches on the weekends in both – our Delhi and well as Gurgaon centres (address and details on the contact page). Please call us to arrange an appointment, we’ll also be happy to offer you a trial class where you can see what the classes are like and join afterwards.

  • Hi there –

    Do you do private contemporary dance classes?

    • Hi Hima,

      Yes, we do all kinds of private classes. However, we need to know where and when the private classes have to be arranged to check if the instructors will be available or not.

      It would be great if you could get in touch with me on 9953835088 and provide more details.

      Thanks and regards,

Dance Away that Flab

Can't decide between the gym and dancing to lose that extra weight or to stay fit in general? Here's a list of dance forms taught at Delhi Dance Academy with the average calories burnt in 1 hour:

Zumba: 500-1000
Aerobics: 500-800
Jazz Contemporary: 400-600
Bharatnatyam: 400-600
Hip-Hop: 350-550
Belly dance: 250-450
Bollywood: 300
Salsa: 200-300

These numbers vary with your body weight and the amount of effort you put in.

How can I lose weight?
You lose weight when you consume or burn more calories than you take. Burning 3500 calories means you lose 1 lbs or 450 grams (almost half a Kilo) of weight.

In other words, if you cut 500 calories from your diet each day or burn 500 calories working out or dancing, you would lose 0.45 kgs in a week. :)

At Delhi Dance Academy we can also talk to you about your daily diet and recommend changes to help you lose weight.

Delhi Dance Academy has been featured on 24 x 7 News Channel as one of Delhi's best dance institutes. We have made recent appearances on TV Channels like BBC, Aajtak, E TV, NHK World, MTv and NDTV Goodtimes. We are among the top 50 activities to do while in Delhi by TripAdvisor with excellent reviews.
