Incorporating elements from jazz, modern, ballet, and aerobics, Jazz Fusion with Leon Von Brown delivers a fun and energetic dance experience for all.

About the Series:

Moving in the Spirit’s all-ages class series is a place for the community to move together, have fun, and explore different styles of dance in a low-stress, friendly environment.

Students in this series come from a range of experiences – some have danced before, while others are exploring their curiosity about dance for the first time. Parents and children often take class together, as do friends, neighbors, and co-workers looking for an upbeat bonding activity.

No formal dance training is required!
