What you'll learn in this dance class:

When creating or executing a choreography, dancers often focus only on the individual movements that make up the dance, but a dance is more than just individual movements stacked next to each other. Similar to music, it's not just about the notes played, but the spaces in between the notes. As dancers, we can look at our execution of a dance and see the movements executed well, but still feel that something is missing. Often, that missing element is that space between the moves or transitions.In this 90 minute class, we'll learn a piece of choreography and video record that piece as a group. We'll then re-examine that piece focusing on those "spaces between the moves" and video record again. You'll be amazed at the difference in your execution of the two.

Refund Policy
Tuition once paid is non-refundable.

If the class does not meet the minimum requirement of 5 students, you will have a class on week 1. However, if by the 1st day of week 2 there's still not the minimum number of students registered then you will get a phone call asking if you'd like to switch to another weekly offering. If that does not work with your schedule we will refund the session price minus a single-class cost (for week 1).
