FUNDAMENTALS

Our fundamentals classes are designed for artists brand new to dance. We start by providing you with the most basic knowledge of terminology, class structure, and technique concepts to help you immediately begin dancing in a healthy, holistic way during movement calls. This is your chance to get comfortable on the dance floor and start exploring how movement feels in your body. If you don’t know where to begin, start at the very beginning.

 

BEGINNER

Our beginner classes are for artists who self-identify as movers needing to focus on technique development, choreography assimilation, and establishing confidence with movement. We address each of these components in a nurturing environment dedicated to building your skill set. Technique components include proper body alignment, balancing and single pirouettes,  utilizing dynamics in choreography, and exploring assimilation tools. If you are ready to instill confidence in your movement, there’s no time like the present.

A class for artists looking to elevate their technique to the next level. Perhaps you’ve nailed that single pirouette and are looking to solidify your double. Maybe you can execute the steps but need help with picking them up quicker while layering your storytelling and presence. Our advanced beginner classes are a place to challenge the fundamentals and grow to new heights. If you are ready to confidently take class throughout the city, this is how you get there.
