Jazz Dance
Jazz is a technique-based, energy-intensive form of dance that leaves lots of room for individual style. We'll begin each class with stretching and body conditioning to make sure everyone is fully warmed up, then we'll move across the floor learning new steps. Class will conclude with a combination in the center of the floor. We'll move to dynamic music from various different genres. All levels are welcome, so don't be intimidated by lack of experience! Everyone can dance - dancers are just the people who realize it. 
Instructor: Isabella Soparkar
Mondays, 8:00 - 9:00 pm

Step Aerobics
Exercise along with the fun beat of music that will work your whole body and sweat you good! The exercises routine starts out with an easy-to-follow, basic choreograph. Each week new steps will be added onto the basic steps to create a combo routine.  This class involves a lot of bouncing and jumping on the step at times.  No previous experience is required.
