Class Description
Daniel's class is a place for dancers to grow as technicians and performers. The class begins with a warm up and series of across the floor exercises. These exercises will touch upon the dancers' base technique to properly engage their body and mind. Next, Daniel will teach a class combination which he designs to improve the dancer's ability to add their own finesse to their performance. His focus on technical and performance qualities in a welcoming environment will have students feeling more confident and ready to take these skills into future performance opportunities.
