Spring Dance Team Technique Classes

Are you ready to take your dance skills to the next level in preparation for spring tryouts? Join Coach Karla's specialized training program designed to elevate your flexibility, strength, technique, and performance readiness for the upcoming tryouts!


Coach Karla’s classes lead you through targeted exercises and drills aimed at refining every aspect of your dance technique. We'll kick off each class with a focused warm-up to improve flexibility, strength, and balance, setting the foundation for your training. We will work on jamps and leaps, focusing on placement, and height. Then, alternating between sessions, we'll dedicate our focus to either turn or kick technique, ensuring a well-rounded skill set that shines during tryouts.
