Rooted in the legacy of American social dances, this all-ages and all-skill-level workshop creates a space for participants to tap into their inner groove. Each workshop in the ‘find the groove’ series focuses in on various dance and music forms including hip-hop, house, salsa, and/or jazz as entry points to connecting mind, body, and soul.  This fun-filled, informative class includes a warm-up to awaken the entire dancing self, drills to hone in on specific skills, and a movement phrase to practice these skills in a non-competitive, supportive atmosphere.

This workshop includes distinctive contemporary modern style that explores a wide range of movement vocabularies that involve syncopated rhythms, and lush, organic movement. With a strong emphasis on musicality and creativity this class demands the dancer work from the inside, out to make choices that allow the body to move. This approach to dance challenges students to become the best possible dancers they can be.  Movement phrases are developed based on concepts of body flows  taught for clear understanding and to increase the body’s efficiency in space.
