Class Description:
John’s classes and choreography are a unique fusion of the greats of the past to the current styles of today. His forty-minute warm up consists of Classical Jazz, Modern and Ballet, that build strength, technique, flexibility, and style. Following his warm up, dancers are given short dance progressions at center and across the floor, connecting turns, jumps, kicks and weight transfer combinations. Classes are fun, challenging, and dancers are always left feeling accomplished and inspired!
I look forward to seeing you in class!
