BEG JAZZ / THEATER DANCE
- Class begins with working on isolation from head to toe as a
pre warm-up. Inga emphasizes ballet and Horton technique to help refine the students' jazz
technique. She then completes her warm-up with a nice stretch and strengthening segment before
working on coordination exercises both center and across the floor.
The class incorporates the different styles of renowned teachers such as Luigi, Matt Mattix,
Ron Lewis, Fosse and many more to help the student become versatile. The final combination
uses musical theater genre to encourage the students to relax and let their technique flow while
having a good time performing. This class provides a fun supportive atmosphere while gaining the
confidence and skills needed to be a strong dancer.
