HERE ARE CORE PRINCIPLES OF STLYES I WILL BE DRAWING FROM :
Jazz : Jazz incorporates many of the same elements as ballet it is a form of dance that only officially started in the 1900's and was anything that was performed to jazz music (including tap at the time). Jazz is high energy, and energetic, it uses both traditional and non-traditional movements which encourages a high level of improvisation, which makes it the perfect class to blend genres and showcase each dancer's individual style!
Musical Theatre : This is crucial in any class about performance, clean lines, developing a character and performing for an audience. Learn to perfect your performance
Commercial Dance : Sassy and styled routines focused on dynamics, timing, rhythm, performance and musicality while using techniques from jazz and contemporary. Technique with fierce and passionate performance.
