The music can be fast or slow allowing Students to use freedom of expression to enhance their performing skills.
In the beginners class we start from basic shapes and positions which they can then build on and put together to make a routine and help with their learning and discipline in other areas.
Within the classes students work from basics and build on skills whilst still maintaining the skills they already have. We work on perfecting their technique within these skills and ensuring they have the pre-requisites to develop these skills further.
By perfecting their technique with some skills, it allows for them to find harder skills easier when it comes to learning them.
We work on strength and flexibility also by doing conditioning throughout the sessions and making this fun and interesting by turning them into circuits or games.
