T&L (TURNS AND LEAPS) is a technique class in which dancers will master the ability to demonstrate extensions, turns, leaps and jumps. Stretching and core work will be an important part of this class. While finding and strengthening core muscles, dancers will be instructed in how to execute and perfect high extensions, powerful turns and high jumps while maintaining balance and control. This is not a performance class.
