Airsteps Intensive
7:30 PM19:30

Airsteps Intensive

HTJ is excited to host another Air Steps Intensive on Friday, January 9th! 

We are doing something a little different this time around! The first half of the class John and Lindsay will be teaching a new air step to everyone. For the second half of the class, they will be helping the students refine an air step that they are working on. The idea behind this intensive is to not only teach something new, but to also help the students dance in and out of an air step, on a safe, soft floor. 

For those of you that are taking the Competition Intensive the next day, this will be a great opportunity to work on some tricks on a soft floor, before the Saturday classes. 

We are capping this class at 16 people (8 couples) to give more personal attention to the students. 

Early Bird: $80/couple ($40 per person) before Dec 31st
Regular: $100/couple ($50/per person) 

SPECIAL PROMO: $10 off the price (per couple) for anyone attending the Competition Intensive! 

No refunds or credits once registration is completed and payment received. 

Registration is now open: https://swingtix.ca/
