Three workshops - Improvisation skills and drills for all levels.

How do you "just dance"? It's not magic, though it can seem that way; it's skills that YOU can learn! These three workshops will take you into some of the techniques behind improvisation. You'll learn tools to hear the music, and pair movement in the moment. Turn off your thinking brain, turn on your dancing brain!

All three of these workshops welcome students of all levels, beginner through advanced. You must have at least one session of classes prior in order to be familiar with basic vocabulary. Dancers at all levels will be challenged to grow and develop new skills in movement and musicality.
