More About the Program
The program is divided into three categories of classes:
(The classes will be explored within the Connective Schedule System)
Connective Schedule System (CSS)
The Connective Schedule System is a learning approach where skills and knowledge are gradually developed in class.
For example, in the first month you will learn the sliding techniques from the principle “footwork”. This principle will be developed in the Style class, where you'll test different ways of incorporating that footwork into your dance vocabulary.
Throughout the program, teachers will be guiding, supporting and monitoring your progress.
There will be continuous feedback on how to improve; but most importantly, provide motivation and focus to reach your goals.
