Debi irons is teaching her  original VARIANT Jazz for ages 11 and up. VARIANT is a hybrid of musically derived dance forms, combining developmentally appropriate technique with self-expression and creativity.  Unite in a love of dance.  Delight in our unique contribution to community.

Irons continues to take modern jazz classes and was rigorously trained in ballet, modern, and jazz.  All, along with theater, street, afro-brazilian, improvisation and composition - are used in her teaching.

Debi teaches VARIANT, OLD OLD OLD SCHOOL HIP-HOP, JAZZ,  TECHNIQUE, DANCE THEATER, and is open to new ideas and requests!

Kids classes are one hour.  Teen and Adult classes are sometimes  longer, depending on stamina and desire :)

TECHNIQUE for the serious student 9+ - placement, alignment, and a deeper sense of where in the body and through space movement comes from.  Most beneficial for young dancers when accompanied by a Variant class.
