Today was my first day taking virtual contortion and handstand press classes with KY Dance. I found my instructor (Victoria K) over Instagram and after following her for some months, I decided to give her classes a try. I'm an adult learner, so I was curious about how well a virtual session would go. I liked that the class size was small, and the instructor gave feedback evenly to each student. Even though there were students on different levels, there was always an adaptable skill for each level, so no one was left out. The classes were well-balanced with strengthening, technique work, and skills, so you never got bored. I'm very excited about continuing classes, and how far I can progress in these courses!
