Classes are led by Marianna Tsartolia and Anastasia Soroczynski - professional dancers who have over 20 years of combined experience teaching dance to children. The classes are designed to introduce new students and advance returning students to fundamental modern technique and vocabulary, including the elements of "contraction and release". During the course of the semester, students will experience, study, and explore the rhythmical diversity and power of music through their movement. At the conclusion of the semester there will be a studio showing that will include a class demonstration and a dance choreographed by the students.
