Group Class Performances – SOLO MOVEMENT

Participating in a performance class is an incredibly rewarding way to develop and improve your technique and musicality.
Group classes are 8 – 12 weeks long and individual practice outside of class is highly suggested so that you and your partner will shine on stage.

This year show will feature three Solo Charleston Classes.  We’re so excited to present performances from our stylin’ beginning, intermediate and advanced dancers.
