Beginner Jazz: This class is for students with a minimum knowledge of technique. It focuses on Jazz and Ballet foundation to build a strong base to then move to the choreography where you will work on dynamics, training the body and brain to learn choreography and enjoy dance at the same time.
Adv. Beg. Theater Jazz: An advanced level of technique is required to get the maximum from this class. It starts with a really fun and cardio warm up, followed by technique and focus on battements and turns to finish in a long challenging but FUN choreography. The goal is to offer the students tools to learn and remember choreography and the difference in this class is the focus on storytelling, characteristic of Theater Jazz.
Beginner Contemporary: This classes it is a completely different class from the other classes Mica offers, it is structured to help the students connecting the breath with the movement, learning and focusing on spine movements, contractions, basic floorwork and connection with feelings finding dynamics and flow.
Open Technique: In this class we will work on Jazz and Contemporary fundamentals and basics to get more advantage when taking other classes. There is no choreography, just drills and space to practice and master your technique.
