1/7 Tues 5:30-7:00
Tonight’s class was focused on soft shoe material. We started with pointing and switching drills focusing on the following: locking legs, pointing toes, crossing feet, and keeping all movements sharp. We then reviewed both steps of reel and jig. Dancers were encouraged to apply what we worked on in drills as well as keep moving, using their whole floor throughout the dance. We plan to review slip jigs and hard shoe material next week before moving on to learning the slow hornpipe.
