    Class Description

    Warm up consists of varied exercises gathered around the principles of placement, proper alignment and strength, bringing awareness to your entire body. Using influences of Jazz, Modern, Ballet, Latin, Street Styles and Contemporary, phrases will be created for you to enliven your artistry, strengthen your musicality and explore what you're made of as a storyteller! In an extremely supportive and positive environment, we will always constructively focus on the importance of thorough and connected transitions, learn the value of traveling generously throughout the room, learn how to take risks, and find your deepest love for moving. Come with a willingness to grow, build your vocabulary, your athleticism and your confidence. The intention of the class is to leave you physically and artistically inspired!
