Every Sunday in June starting June 2nd!

The mastery of dance has a lot to do with your enjoyment of its pursuit–the more you know going in, the greater the enjoyment of the process–and the more you enjoy, the faster it becomes a part of you. Blow past the initial introductory phase and go straight to the good stuff.  What a great idea!

This 4 class workshop (offered monthly) is designed to build your confidence in the study of Hip Hop, Jazz and Contemporary movement by teaching you the characteristic and universal steps that define each of these genres.

Whereas each of our other workshops is a crash course in understanding one specific dance style, this workshop focuses exclusively on building your choreographic vocabulary in three popular styles.  Imagine how many doors this training will open for you!

Check out the syllabus below for details!

Graduates of this workshop will be inspired to jump into our Intro to Hip Hop, Welcome to Jazz and Intro to Contemporary classes with confidence and skill.
