Jumps & Turns (12+ years)
Jumps & Turns is a technique only class designed to improve the overall ability of the student in all forms of dance. This jazz-based technique class focuses on different kinds of turns, jumps, leaps & kicks including more complicated combinations across the floor and in the centre.
Students will work to increase extension, flexibility, turns with more precision and various leaps appropriate for age and level.
This class is designed for dancers currently registered in a full year performance program as a supplement to their weekly training. Dancers currently registered in other dance programs elsewhere are also welcome to register for this class to supplement their training.
