Leaps & Turns
Similar to a jazz class, but focusing on primarily leaps across the floor and all kinds of turns. Add some fun new skills to your repertoire with this class.

This is a great addition to a dancer’s class schedule as well as very beneficial for those in drill team or other activities that require these skills.
