Class Description

These classes are oriented to intermediate and advanced students that are interested in improving their arm movements and coordination, also the upper body placement and posture. Each class will consist of barre and center work.

The classes will begin with barre exercises which, while warming up the body, will help you develop strength and mobility coordination until we get to the center work. The center work will take you from simple steps onto more challenging ones including tours and pirouettes and adding batteries into jumps.
