off ice classes
With my unique qualities as both a skater & a dancer I have developed dance classes specifically for skaters. They incorporate elements of both arts to create a fusion that cultivates each skater’s artistry and grace engaging their own creativity and developing their own signature style. I offer two off ice classes that develop these qualities.
