What is a clinic day?
On clinic days, all members of Superstition Dance will come together to learn from one of the fabulous world class clinicians we have invited to Arizona! Each clinician will be covering different topics and teaching in different styles to provide a wide range of educational content for the members overall. We are working closely with each clinician during their prep period to ensure the classes will reflect the skill level and needs of all of our members.
