  • Girls and Boys ages 15 to 18 – a classical variation

It you do not have access to a studio, just do the best you can at home. If you film at home please do just a few small jumps and a bit of pointe work at the barre. If you film at home the variations isn’t necessary unless you can send an old video that was filmed before the quarantine.
