Dancing through Movement –
Date: March 20
Time: 11 am
For this series, we will focus on the ability to dance through movement so it breaks away from the “technical execution” of the move and looks different from that of your peers. I will guide you through different exercises to help you enhance your ability to dance through movements. Dancing through movements is important because it helps you express concepts, ideas, feelings, etc. But before you can express those ideas and flush them out, you need to work on moving in a way that says something. Pre-reqs: comfort and familiarity with the apparatus of your choice. Come with a simple sequence or two in mind to use throughout the class. Beginners welcome!
