Each class starts with a game to get our students in the mood and interacting with each other.

After our game we move straight onto our warm up and into class. Each class involves students learning some technique/foundations, exploring them creatively in their own way through concepts and creative tasks, and learning fun routines based on these foundation movements. We always finish with a cool down and reflection.
