Commonwealth Society of Teachers of Dancing (CSTD)
World-famous choreographer Jason Winters has collaborated with CSTD on this new comprehensive Contemporary Technique syllabus. Its technique and structure is designed in the most classical and academic way and infused with choreographic electricity used in today’s most commercial settings.
With its building blocks in Graham Technique, Horton Technique, Ballet and Jazz, it combines a sense of movement, flow, energy, and breath that has been developed over years of exploration.
