3/2 M/W 6:30-8:30
We spent the entire class tonight in soft shoes. We ran each step by itself, then broke down second step of slip jig, third step of reel for the girls, and first step of reel for the boys focusing on controlling the spins in each step. We then drilled leaps and birds, focusing on lines, pointing, and kicking the butt consistently. We followed that with “1-2 switch step” drills as this is a piece that often gets overlooked leading up to a jump. We finished class by running all three steps of soft shoe. We spent a lot of time tonight discussing the details that are currently missing from the dancing - especially maintaining locked legs and fully pointed toes throughout every piece.
