August classes: Micropivots, microadjustments & Body English

It's the first week of the month, so it's private lesson give-away on Thursday! Come try your luck!

Theme of the month

August will be dedicated to incorporating useful/fun moves into our dance, focusing on the transitions between moves: what I call micropivots, microadjustments, Body English--the stuff we don't tend to talk about, but that every dancer needs to use!

Class schedule
