All professional classes at The Place are intended for high-level dancers only. These classes offer professional dancers an opportunity to maintain their skills and abilities, network with other professionals and even maybe find new projects to work on.
If you are an amateur dancer, there are lots of other opportunities for you to engage with. Browse our adult classes programme for more information.
These classes require professional standards from participants and early arrival is required for warm up.
Ingrid’s jazz classes are rooted in technique drawn from traditional jazz, ballet and Horton modern technique. The emphasis on technique enables the dancer to be free in performance and expression. Through jazz progressions and challenging combinations, the dancer will layer dynamics, polyrythm and musicality drawing from a variety of disciplines and musical influences. Ingrid’s class environment is positive and high energy.
