    Class Description:

    Dancers will work on flexibility, strength, range and ease of movement and building / maintaining technique. Working from a strong center, dancers move through the class finding freedom in the use of torso and limbs, finding a sense of dynamics and initiation of movement and finding a sense of breath vs. control.

    Born from a foundation in ballet, the warm up is created to be a combination of traditional stretching, center barre and full- bodied movement. The class focuses on allowing each dancer to work to their fullest potential, using technique to allow for efficient and effective communication within the choreography. Whether working in lyrical, contemporary or traditional jazz combinations, dancers are challenged to become magnetic and confident performers.
