There is strong emphasis on performance and all members of the Intermediate class are encouraged to perform with the student troupe Aiwa! at haflas, festivals and local events, however this will be dependant on regular attendance in weekly classes and rehearsals.

 At intermediate level, you will be expected to take more control of your own learning and dance development through attending classes regularly,  and taking time in between classes to practice technique and choreography. It is also strongly recommended that students in this class attend workshops with other teachers wherever possible, in addition to the course.
