Working on dance technique is crucial for every dancer and no matter your style of dance, the ability to perform amazing leaps and turns is essential. This special class will teach the basics of how to land a leap, and jump correctly, landing 'through the foot'. Students will also learn pirouettes both single and double, soutanou, and pose turns, all of which can be adapted and developed into more advanced turns as the student progresses. Students will also learn how to execute jetes and grande jetes correctly, aiming for correct extension and propulsion through the legs.

Meet your Instructor Jennifer Gregory:

Jennifer Anne Gregory is a talent coach and manager, quietly working with a very select number of children and young adults who demonstrate absolute commitment to the level of work it takes to succeed in the entertainment industry.
Originally from Liverpool, England Jennifer started dance training at age 14, scoring scholarships with London Contemporary Dance Theater and Ballet Rambert by age sixteen. At seventeen, Jennifer turned down a professional dance contract for a six week repertory stint acting in a Strindberg play alongside Joley Richardson (101 Dalmations, The Last Mimsy). Jennifer went on to earn the coveted and at the time, nearly impossible to earn, British Equity Card a year prior to completing her professional training.  Jennifer was the only one in her graduating class to do so.
Tired of touring, Jennifer discovered her love of working with young, professional children and adults as they entered the commercial performing artFrom this beginning, many of Jennifer’s students have gone on to star in West End theatre roles, including Blood Brothers, Tell Me on a Sunday and Chicago.
Currently, Jennifer’s students are represented by local and New York agencies such as Take Three Talent in NY. Jennifer’s continually developing industry connections frequently place her qualified students for workshops with leading NY and LA casting directors, such as Kimberly Graham (Homeland, Avatar), Matthew Maisto, (The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings), and many other industry leaders.
Student’s currently working under Jennifer have been accepted at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) and have appeared as featured roles in Homeland, The Intern, and even an FBI training video produced by a three time Emmy Award winning production company. Two of Jennifer’s students became SAG/AFTRA eligible prior to their teens.
