    Class Description



    Jana’s class can be described as highly physical and technical. The warm up focuses on the body as a whole and in motion, with emphasis on building strong technique as a base to support freedom in any style of dance. Her movement phrases can be fast and percussive or lyrical and fluid, but always technically challenging. Her philosophy: dancers will improve technically and grow artistically when given proper guidance and the freedom to express their unique individuality.
