    Class Description

    Susie's class, focuses on musicality and artistry and especially finding ones own true voice as a dancer. The class begins with a series of breathing exercises and a warmup based in her background of classical ballet, jazz and contemporary dance to build strength and proper technique. The class then dives into her unique and original choreography that not only is deeply rooted in the music but also asks each dancer to shape the space around them and bring their individual genuine self to the movement. Every student is encouraged to find their artistic voice, tell a story and connect with their audience. By creating a warm, safe and encouraging environment dancers can truly be fearless, and move from a place of love and devotion to dance.
