Always wondered how Beyoncé, Rhianna, and Tina Turner dance around the stage so confidently in their stilettos? This class will teach you how. Dancing in heels requires a strong understanding of, believe it or not, Jazz Technique.
This class will teach you how to carry your weight when you walk, pose, dance and balance in your sexiest heels! Routines, and progressions are taught to popular music, and the moves are inspired by our pop and rock divas… All whilst engaging your core muscles, legs and glutes
For novice dancers interested in participating in the Absolute Beginner/Beginner-Elementary class, we highly recommend participating in the dance basics or the ballet basics courses first to assist in developing a strong foundation and dance technique before attempting to dance in a stiletto heel.
In this class students are encouraged to wear a stiletto heel, in a supportive fully covered shoe such as an ankle boot. Chunky heels and kitten heels are discouraged, as they encourage you to sit back in your heel and not carry your weight forward, wedges and platforms are simply dangerous.
