WPA follows the NZAMD contemporary syllabus, choreographed by Ann Dewey. The syllabus teaches students to understand the concepts of contemporary movement such as weight, flow, momentum, and the use of gravity, while enjoying a sense of dance that focuses on freedom of movement and spatial awareness.

Students taking other Gravity Dance classes are encouraged to add contemporary dance to their repertoire, when they are old enough, as the concepts of movement benefit their other dancing.

Students are encouraged to sit contemporary exams.  Senior non-exam students please see "Commercial Dance".
