    Class Description:
    Tiffanie’s contemporary class offers a variation of slow to fast-paced, kinetically charged movement that incorporate elements of jazz technique and contemporary modern styles. Warm-up and exercises include deep stretching, release technique, isolations, spinal articulations, and floor work to awaken the body and get the blood pumping, Tiffanie will challenge and encourage the dancers to bring their most present, athletic, and virtuosic selves to the exercises and combinations.
