Julie’s class draws from a blend of jazz, ballet, and modern dance styles. After a thorough full-body warm-up, the focus during the combo each week will be staying grounded during the movement and finding specificity and clarity in the body while also adding a range of dynamics to compliment the music. Julie loves when dancers take risks and make unique choices, embracing their individuality. This class aims to develop the dancers’ artistry and technique while dancing to today's most current tunes.
