The iD-Company course covers many techniques giving dancers a broad training to the many directions of contemporary dance


Contemporary dance is a style of expressive dance that combines elements of several dance genres including modernjazzlyrical, classical ballet and more recently street dance.

Contemporary dancers work to connect the mind and the body through fluid and dynamic dance movements. 


Unlike the strict, structured nature of ballet. Contemporary dancers focus on floorwork, using gravity to pull them down to the floor.

This dance genre is often done in bare feet. Contemporary dance can be performed to many different styles of music.

Pioneers of contemporary dance include Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, and Merce Cunningham and more recently Matthew Bourne. 

Choreography is often created through improvisation.



Our newly developed app is available for anyone to download and use, whether you are a dancer in training or a teacher looking to gain a qualification in contemporary dance.




If you have never learnt contemporary and want to learn, we recommend you start at grade 1 and build up through our grading system. If you are more experienced, start at a higher grade. 


Once you have downloaded our app each grade has a trailer which shows you the standard of our exercises so that you can work out which grade is best suited to your current ability. 


Every exercise is broken down in a one to one tutorial, performed with counts and then to current music. 

Each grade can be purchased individually from a low cost and depending on your ability, we recommend you work on each grade from 6 months to a year. 


Why not find a dance school that teaches our syllabus so that you can enter yourself into our examination system. 


We are soon to be offering dance examinations through accredited dance schools online. 




If you are looking to deliver a brilliant programme of study in contemporary dance within your dance school, this is the app for you! 


Within the exercises, everything is broken down in a one to one tutorial, performed with counts and then to current music. 

To enter students into our examination system, you must attend the iD-Company teacher’s course to become a fully qualified member. 


On the course you will receive the teacher’s handbook, a music guide, certificate of qualification and learn the skills you need to teach at your best.


iD-Company launched in the UK 5 years ago and has had unprecedented success!

We are soon to be launching our courses worldwide in person and online throughout the USA, Europe, Australasia, Canada and China. 


For full information about each of our grades, download the app now to watch the trailers and see what is fully included. 

Our syllabus covers many techniques giving dancers a broad training and an introduction to the many directions of contemporary dance.

There are many methods to training in contemporary dance, through following the course many of the components from these methods are taught -


Fall and recovery

Direction changes


Core strengthening

Connecting with the floor 


Creating original choreography 

5 set dances


Each Grade has been designed to build a solid technique from set exercises to enable students to dance new, challenging and inspiring sequences.


In each grade students perform a set dance which can be altered for their own interpretation for their exam, but it must be danced using an emotion or theme from a list provided for each grade.


As the Uk’s most up coming dance style used by most choreographers, contemporary dance training is a major component that all dancers should attain for their future.

We have devised a new way to help teachers that we believe will transform dance in the UK.


With fresh ideas and new approaches that involve practical assessments we want our teachers be the best they can be.


iD believe reading from a book is not enough, you have to dance the steps and know their origins.


Once you know this information learning and teaching the syllabus is easy as you have an understanding of what each exercise has been designed for.


We want to help you be your best and know that you may forget something or need a little help sometimes.

With this in mind we have set up a private Facebook group for you to join upon finishing the course.

You can ask questions, share videos and make friends with your fellow teachers.

 Know that you are not alone!

 But we are all connected if you ever need to ask our team a question.



Our music uses traditional and currents artists so the class is fun for yourself and dancers.
