Class Description:
Classes begin with a warm up focusing on strength, conditioning, and core. Across the Floor may include improv, as well as a short contemporary-based movement combination to follow. Combinations are meant to challenge the mind, as well as to improve the pace of retaining choreography. His main focus is to challenge students to develop dynamics, style, and performance technique as quickly and efficiently as possible, in order to improve their class and audition skills. Contemporary based combinations are fused with authentic jazz technique and/or theatre inspired.
