Tandem Liability and Photo Release

This is a dance movement class for those who want floor time to practice the basics. Techniques from Ballet, Jazz, Hip-hop, Modern, and Contemporary genres will be utilized. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow free movement. You may take the class in your preferred footwear the exception being shoes that you have worn outside. This is a class for those who haven't had extensive formal dance training but want to work hard and catch up! You will be hot, and you will sweat, so bring a big bottle of water.
