    Class Description

    Grant Chang has developed his own special style from years of dance training. The warm-up concentrates on stretch and reinforcing all muscle groups through a series of repetitive movements based on traditional techniques from jazz, incorporating ballet and some modern. Exercises include isolations, plies, jazz adagio, and abdominal and arm strengthening. Following is always an across the floor exercise to develop turns. Combinations are repeated throughout the week to give students the opportunity more than one time to master it. He alternates from lyrical to jazz funk so students can develop and adapt to a variety of different styles. There's a great emphasis on technique but, most importantly, there is a greater emphasis on expressing individuality by letting go and dancing with a real honest and truthful emotional awareness. It is never about being the best but just doing your personal best. Above all it's just plain fun and a great workout!
