DANCES OF AFRICA for ages 9-12
With Kim Waterman
This high-energy class introduces students to the foundation principles of Modern/Jazz technique through the study of African rooted rhythms and dances. Students will study isolations, range in movement quality, elementary jazz form, and rhythmic footwork. They will learn to identify beat and pulse in music and in their own bodies. Traditional dances provide a rich forum for both technical and creative expression in individual and group process.
Tuesday 3:45-5 PM, with live music by Rick Shrum 4:30-5:00 PM
$280 for the full session
