Contemporary Dance: All Levels

Weds starting April 12th, 8:00 – 9:15 pm
Jazz Dance Moves & More
A fun, innovative and technically challenging dance work out. In this mixed level class I use ballet barre to develop and strengthen your center, then across the floor to work on turns and short combinations. A main choreography is set to a wide range of musical genres, from Jazz/Classical & Fusion, Hip-Hop, Blues, Pop and World Music. The rhythms are fierce and will ignite the dancer in you. All levels welcome.
