Balance: Advanced Basics *3:00 pm*

Ever wish there was a pill you could take to make you a better dancer. Unfortunately, there’s no quick fix but for those determined individuals this class is the next best thing.  In this workshop, you will walk away with great drills and exercises that you can practice both on your own and with a practice partner. You will learn the tools you need to really take your dance to a higher level. Here are a few concepts that we will be covering in this class: leg & foot action, foot pressure, groundedness, connection (open and closed), anchoring, basic stretch and settling, posture (blocks of weight)

 

Musicality: Operation *4:00 pm*

In this workshop, you will learn how to dissect the music. First we will show you how to listen for the lyrics, specific instruments, and other musical trends. Once you identify the guts of the song, we will close up by teaching you some options of what you can do to accentuate them.

 

Ladies styling: Sassy Feminine and Flirty 7:00 pm*

 Learn how to use body isolations, footwork, and arm styling to accent lyrics, breaks, and common repetitions in music through the medium of choreography.

 

*8:00 pm DANCE!*

Prices: $30 Both workshops & Dance

$10 Ladies Styling Workshop

 

$10/$5 Dance
