    Class Description:



    Classes begin with Warm Up, focusing on Strength, Conditioning, and Core. Across the Floor can include Improv, as well as a short Contemporary based Movement combination to follow. Steven teaches Combinations that are meant to challenge the Mind, as well as to improve the pace of retaining Choreography. His main focus is to force students to develop dynamics, style, and performance as quickly and efficiently as possible, in order to better our class taking and audition skills. Contemporary based Combinations are fused with either Authentic Jazz Technique, Theatre inspired Dance, or a combination thereof. His movement is designed to tell a story, and to bring the Audience along with us on a natural, honest, and exciting journey. Steven strives to make the learning environment feel collaborative, supportive, and tension free. Class is a place to grow, fight, but most of all, be happy. Students should leave every class feeling motivated, challenged, accomplished, and ready to take on any class or audition that may come their way.
