Ursula Robb

My class is a contemporary-based warm up for the body, drawing on the many dance influences I have been exposed to over the course of my career. We will start with somatic-based floor work, moving to standing, warming the joints before building to a series of movement phrases, which will include rolling on the floor, jumping, running and maybe the odd cartwheel…by the end of class you should feel warm and ready for the day ahead!

DanceHouse Protocols

Please note the following measures have been put in place for the well being of all who use DanceHouse.
Collectively, we will find a new rhythm for interacting while ensuring we follow best practice in keeping ourselves and others safe as we move in the studio space.

  • ​While changing rooms and showers are available for use by those who need them, we do encourage everyone to arrive in the clothes needed for practice, whenever possible.
  • Each group or class entering DanceHouse has a specific time to do so, 15 minutes before their class starts. 
    This is done to minimise crossover between groups entering and leaving, keep the flow in the building and to prevent clusters of people in the foyer and stairs.   
    Unfortunately, you cannot come earlier than above to keep the number of people at the safest level.
    All participants must leave the studio promptly after class – time for cool down will be part of the class and there will not be additional time in the studio after class for this.
    These times are scheduled to limit the crossover of people entering and leaving.
