Turns, Leaps, and Stretch


5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.

This class is for the dancer who is serious about giving extra attention to improving their dance skills. This class is a combination of deep stretching and body conditioning. It is heavy in cardio to increase endurance for the dancer.

The class includes several arms, abdominal, and leg exercises to strengthen the entire body. Strong and healthy muscles are vital for protecting the body and of course improving dance skills.

Technique is the foundation for all dance movement! A strong technical foundation and core enables a dancer to focus on the stylistic and performance aspects of dance. Technique and posture is essential for jumps and turns, and to properly execute such moves.

Students who are enrolled in Jazz, Lyrical, and Contemporary classes will find the turns, leaps, and stretch class very beneficial. This class will also help the dancers achieve better and higher leaps and well as improve turn series.

This class is a pre-introduction to tumbling and is a great class to help transition your children into a tumbling class on their own.
