WE WILL NOT be level testing attendees.  Instead you were asked to select what you wanted to work on from a list on the registration form.  We have separated you into two groups and have asked all the instructors to concentrate on these aspects in their classes.

The RED group will work on QUALITY OF MOVEMENT & FLOW, RHYTHM, TIMING & MUSICALITY.
