Dance Inspires - video by Nina Saurug

Class Description

A fusion of modern, jazz, and ballet, Slam’s unique style explores a wide range of organic, often angular movements and syncopated rhythms with a strong base in classical technique. His Contemporary Jazz class emphasizes artistry and musicality, while it challenges the dancer to move in new, unconventional ways.

Starting with a warm-up of modern-influenced, ballet-based exercises that focus on proper execution and alignment, combined with yoga and meditation exercises that take the dancer on a journey, the class evolves to the learning of Slam’s original choreography, broken down and demonstrated for clear understanding. Designed for beginner and intermediate students, an understanding of the classical vocabulary and previous experience with jazz and/or modern dance are helpful.
