Choreography Clean-up Classes

To help you prepare for the weeklong we are now offering choreography clean-up classes on the Sunday before the workshop begins.

  • Choreography clean-ups are not for students just learning the choreography.  These are for students who have learned the choreography previously and want to get feedback and clarification.  
  • These workshops are considered part of the workshops, although optional.  Anyone attending the related workshop can attend for free (but we do ask that they RSVP). 
  • Each choreography clean-up will be two hours, and each two hours is considered a single class.  
  • Anyone who wants to attend a clean-up but not registered for the related workshop can pay regular class drop-in or class card punch.
  • To register or RSVP for Choreo Clean-ups scheduled for your JL2 Weeklong, visit here:  http://www.salimpourstore.com/collections/workshops/products/pre-and-post-workshop-choreography-clean-up-classes
