Kristina is thrilled to be teaching the Adult Beginner Jazz class at Mark Morris. The class starts with a 45 min technical jazz warm up to build a strong foundation, transitions to an across the floor exercise and concludes with a dance combination that range from vernacular styles to social dance steps, contemporary and theatrical jazz. The class level is based at Advanced Beginner but absolute beginners are welcome and will be absolutely accommodated for. The class is inclusive with a a work hard play hard mentality!
