Students will study rhythm, syncopation, isolation and improvisation while moving to upbeat music. Students gain strength, endurance, flexibility and coordination.
Class focuses on use of breath and core strength while developing spatial relationship and awareness, rhythmic patterning and the beginning of the vocabulary of modern dance.
"Getting it all done" has never been such fun with this all inclusive ‘work out’ class. Using techniques found in body sculpting, power dance and yoga, this class will focus on reshaping the muscles, strengthening cardio vascular fitness and increasing flexibility.
