    Class Description

    My Adv-Beg Horton Class consists of the 5 parts of a dance class.
    Warm up - Roll Downs, Flat backs, Laterals etc
    Floor work - Stretching and strengthening
    Across the floor - continued stretch and elongation of the muscles
    Center work - Horton Studies (Fortifications etc)
    Combination - Short Choreographic Work Using movement from the class.

    This will all be taught using descriptive language and fun insights. All lessons will be taught with a variety of music. This also includes music for Horton Classes as taught and recorded by Ana Marie Forsythe.
