This class blends lyrical techniques with modern accents and contemporary style. Megan’s warm up focuses on strengthening techniques using exercises inspired by ballet, Horton and jazz, followed by deep, relaxing stretches. Her routines move quickly and incorporate weight shifting, articulated changes between hard and soft movement, deep contractions and accented movements where you connect with the music and can throw in your own style. This class keeps you moving and explores the connection with your body through choreography. *Bare feet suggested

She then moves into a combination that will have a focus for that class, whether it be a feeling she wants conveyed or to drill steps to develop your skills as a street style dancer.
