further develop your dance vocabulary and technique while refining your lines, movements, transitions, musicality, expression and understanding of this beautiful art. Different parts of a dance show will be explored and props will also be covered over different sessions. Class format will include warm-up and conditioning, arms, sagat drill, stationary drills, across the floor, improvisation follow and cool down. We incorporate video critiques each session.
