Practice (Open Studio)

You know what they say: Practice makes progress!  Practice Sessions are a great opportunity to practice moves you have been training in class. There won't be any teaching of new moves, but your Instructor will be on hand if you need tips, pointers, or spotting for the moves you have been learning.  It is also a great opportunity to meet other Members and spend time training with your friends! All dancers and aerialists are welcome!
