Dancer Development & Conditioning

Dancer development and conditioning is a class designed to help students elevate their technique skills and build strength using exercises inspired by the Godfrey method. The Godfrey method is a proven and leading training method for dancers around the world. In this class, we will focus on active stretching, strengthening, and building technique to sharpen skills such as turns, jumps, and kicks. This class is open to all levels of dancers, ages 11-adult. Please bring a theraband, yoga mat, and tennis ball with you to this class.
