Whether you are looking to gain a better understanding of how your body moves, learn basic fundamentals, or improve your technique to help you become a better dancer, this is the class for everyone.
In this Fall Semester, you will learn dance terminology, execution of dance moves, body and spatial awareness, isolations, moving within an ensemble, and ensemble dance performance. We will have a final class at the end of the semester, open to friends and family, to showcase what we have learned.
