Printz’s contemporary-jazz technique mixes physically charged, fresh, contemporary dance with elements of jazz and hip-hop allowing students the opportunity to bridge the gap between dance genres  - it is a place where int/adv students with diverse training backgrounds can mingle and broaden their dance aesthetic.  Her classes explore a blended style of dance focusing on musicality, syncopation, detailed gesture, floor work and athleticism.  She is known for her upbeat attitude, uplifting music, and inviting classroom energy and encourages dancers to enjoy and celebrate their dance practice and development.
