The class starts with a warm-up that is based on Mr. Pierlon's unique style; combining ballet, modern and jazz techniques, making sure every muscle group is warm and stretched, as well as Plu's own exercises to help strengthen the body and core muscles. This is then followed by dance combination that consists of different styles of theater dance, techniques and acting components.
