At the end of each mini course, there may be an opportunity to showcase your newly learned skills through an exciting performance. However, there is no pressure to perform, and those who only wish to learn are welcome to do so.
You will have the opportunity to learn challenging choreographies and push your dancing skills while having fun with a group of like-minded women. In these classes, you will also learn how to add flavor, improve technique, incorporate body movement, and dance with fluidity.
