Contemporary Jazz Class with Ingrid MacKinnon (levels 2-3)

part of Summer Dance Courses 2016

Ingrid’s contemporary jazz classes focus on developing a strong basic technique that enables the dancer to be free in performance. This technique is based in traditional jazz influenced by ballet, modern and African. Through jazz and contemporary based progressions and challenging combinations, the dancer will focus on layering and embodying dynamics and musicality. 

Level 2-3: A challenging class for intermediate/advanced students competent in contemporary. This class is designed to expand your knowledge and performance skills, working further on facility, versatility and the dynamics of movement phrasing. 

Ingrid’s passion for dance creates a positive dance environment guaranteed to leave you energized!

This course will run from Monday 1 – Friday 5 August, 4-5.30pm each day.
The course fee of £65 covers all 5 classes.
