Dancers will get detailed feedback to help them find the shapes and movement patterns that lengthen, strengthen, and improve flexibility in a supportive, judgment-free environment.
For dancers who have never taken jazz before, this class will cover the basics and fundamentals of jazz including stretching, balance, and core work. Dancers will get detailed feedback in style and patterns in a supportive, judgment-free environment.
This class is for adult and teen students who want to learn the basics of tap. Dancers will learn rhythm and foundational steps and receive detailed feedback in a judgment-free environment.
Each week of contemporary will feature a warm up, stretching, and across the floor progressions to practice skills and technique for that week's combination. Combinations will change each week and pull from ballet, jazz, modern, and commercial styles to let dancers practice their artistry, floor work, and performance skills. Socks are the recommended footwear for this class.
