7:30PM – 8:30PM: INTERMEDIATE / ADVANCED JAZZ
This class is for those students who want to push themselves and improve their stage presence as well as technique. They should be able to do single and hopefully double pirouettes, chaîné turns, leaps, etc., and be willing to move quickly when it comes to learning combinations. Fosse style will likely make an appearance!
