Students will be introduced to methods of ballet, jazz, and modern, creating a fluid style of movement that encourages self-expression. Students with prior dance background will receive an intermediate/advanced warm-up, a series of across the floor combinations, and a culmination of choreography at the end of class.
Contemporary/Lyrical allows dancers to share movement with the intention of fostering self-expression and a personal story.

Monday & Wednesday | July 24 & 26 | 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
