As in a typical jazz dance class, the classes in this series consist of an isolation warm-up, a dance combination and a cool-down.

Unlike a typical Jazz dance class, however, these classes will feature the use of Steel Clubs as part of the dance combinations. Each class builds upon the previous.

Space is limited to 10 people.
