This class is a fusion between Contemporary & Hip Hop movement. Recommended for dancers with some prior dance experience. My work is driven by the story each song embodies and how each student interprets that song. We will take time to truly listen to the music and speak on the intention we want to possess in class. While also exploring our own movement and emotions through improv at certain points.
