The side leap can be a show stopper. With a little bit of time doing these excersizes at home, you can improve your side leap & wow judges & audiences! (and maybe even surprise your dance teacher when you bust out a great side leap πŸ˜‰)

NEXT SERIES ALERT!!!!!
MOVI is thrilled to announce Leslie Wexler as our next series instructor! Leslie holds an MFA from the University of Michigan and a bachelor’s degree from SUNY Brockport where her training was in Humphrey-Weidman and LimΓ³n techniques. Her class will provide a deeper understanding of LimΓ³n technique, style, and theories, as students will be able to learn both mentally and physically about this modern technique. Leslie agrees with LimΓ³n when he states that β€œposition is not as important as the movement quality and energy used to travel between positions”.
We look forward to seeing you @clarkacademydance in-person, or on zoom!
