Progressions DVD with Mandy Moore
“Progressions with Mandy Moore” is an instructional program that includes four separate combinations of movement meant to travel across the floor, using the length of the studio. Each innovative combination emphasizes a different element of jazz technique: direction change, weight change, level change and use of space. All the combinations are broken down into a beginning, intermediate and advanced version as Mandy pinpoints key concepts having to do with body line, alignment, and dynamics. Feed your technique and dance vocabulary with this unique and essential program designed by choreographer and teacher, Mandy Moore.
