This soulful modern-jazz class equips dancers with a strong technical foundation while focusing on lowering the dancers’ center of gravity and syncopating movement with a blend of latin, modern, ballet, and jazz. This intense fluid class emphasizes the relationship between music and movement and inspires dancers to feel movement from the inside out, keeping you engaged, sweaty, and inspired.
Price: $15 or both for $20
About the instructor: Tracey Durbin recently moved to Durham from Portland, Oregon where she has been an integral part of the Portland dance scene for 25 years.

At age 12 Ms. Durbin trained under Eugene Louis “Luigi” Faccuito, one of the most famous international jazz teachers of his generation. The Luigi technique became the foundation of her teaching career. Ms. Durbin has choreographed and taught for Northwest Dance Project, Body Vox Dance, Oregon Ballet Theatre and Reed College. Most recently, she was one of four choreographers chosen for the Northwest Dance Project Chopin Project with acclaimed pianist Yekwon Sunwoo and was also a featured artist in the book Beauty is Experience: Dancing 50 and Beyond.
