Students continue to focus on alignment, balance, fall and recovery, as well as strengthening and releasing. This class emphasizes a conscientious and supportive group experience in a safe and caring environment, while encouraging dancers to take risks and try new movements.

Requirements: Participation in 2 classes per week is required for level 2 dancers, 3 classes are recommended. Additional classes include: Dances of Africa, Jazz 2-3, Flamenco, Dance for Boys, Ballet (Ballet 2-3, or Ballet 1, depending on level and commitment), or Funk Box Breaking.

African Dance with Nkoula Badila

We will work on getting in touch with our own rhythm, and finding a strong foundation in the relationship between the drum and the dance. We will work on unity, coming together to dance as a team, we will highlight grace in our arms and strength in our legs and feet, we will also work on building our stamina and energy, overall a high energy class with moments of cooling down reflection~ the goal is to feel free in your body while acknowledging the whole of the group.
