We offer regular classes in contemporary dance in Oxford, taught by professional and experienced instructors. Our classes are fun and energetic – and although also technical, the emphasis is on the enjoyment of dance and movement & the freedom to express.


“Going to dance class with Justice in Motion is always the highlight of my week. I appreciate the wholesome environment, the positive energy from all the dancers, and of course, a chance to forget the busy life and get lost in the beautiful artistic creations.” 
(participant) 


“The teachers are good at breaking down the moves so we really catch the 
choreo. It’s truly wonderful, and I’m so thankful I get to be a part of the troop! I’d highly recommend Justice in Motion to anyone wanting to dance.” (participant)

Our Dance Classes:

We are introducing new classes to extend our dance offer in Oxford from 2020:

Contemporary Dance BEGINNERS / INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres, and is taught through guided and fun exercises, leading to short sequences at all levels. These classes draw from influences of flying low/passing through, capoeira, yoga and release technique.

Flying Low focuses mainly on the dancer’s relationship with the floor. The class uses simple movement patterns that involve breathing, speed and the release of energy throughout the body in order to activate the relationship between the centre and the joints, moving in and out of the ground more efficiently by maintaining a centred state.

Body Work has a purpose to educate the body, not on a superficial level of mimicking form, but on a profoundly deep level of understanding the full use of the body as an integral whole to maximise full function of each individuals unique movement potential.
