Michael’s class begins with a 40-minute warm-up focusing on technique and strengthening. The remainder of the class will be spent on developing character through movement. The movement will emphasize rhythm through elements of classic jazz and contemporary styles. The goal is to help dancers find their unique personal motivation which will inform their movement. Michael creates a positive and supportive environment where students will feel safe to explore creatively, ask questions, and learn.
"YOUR CORE IS THE KEY
to all movement. It allows you to quickly change direction, making the movement fast and exciting.
A solid core makes a solid dancer."
