Class begins with a number of movement sequences that stress cardiovascular strength, dynamic flexibility, and technique both in the center and across the floor. In continuance, dance phrases are introduced of varied lengths and textures that integrate jazz, hip-hop, salsa, and contemporary dance techniques. In interpretation and practice of phrases, each dancer is challenged to explore their individuality – focusing on authenticity and quality in performance. NOTE: Improvisational prompts may also be given at any point during each lesson. Class is a judgement-free zone – welcoming of all abilities and backgrounds as it aims to not only train dancers in varied styles, but also build community and support for individual movers.
