What's Jazz without the drama? Exactly! We will apply jazz technique and incorporate elements of Musical Theater to tie it all together.

You're entire life will be a musical theater number after taking this class!
Attire: Suggested clothing- Jazz shoes, socks, ballet shoes, bare feet. Sweats, leggings, shorts, tank top, t-shirt. Attire you can move well in.
Instructor Philosophy:"I started pursuing dance at the age of 17. I've been in plenty of classes where I looked around and wished I had started dancing earlier like everyone else. I know taking class can be very daunting but its not always about the highest kick or crazy hyper extension, its about the heart as well. In my class I want you to be the best dancer that YOU can be. And I hope to inspire my students to know that its never too late to pursue your dreams."
