LEAPS/TURNS

OVERVIEW

This class is a specifically designed technique class that focuses on jumping and turning; two technical aspects of dance that are used in almost all forms of dance and choreography. This class will teach students how to properly prepare for a jump safely to prevent injury to the body and also how to turn properly on the body's center access to prevent from falling over or feeling unstable. The ability to jump and turn correctly is very crucial to a dancer's technical progress, as well as injury prevention.
