Ground Choreography 101

This class is not being offered this session.

Have you dreamed of creating ground choreography for an act but didn’t know where to start? We will begin each class with guided improvisations and games, then dive into tricks and tools for generating original movement phrases. Each week builds on the previous one, leading up to creating your own “mini solo” to be presented in an informal showing on the last day of class, so regular attendance is important! This class is a prerequisite to Ground Choreo 102: Floor to Air which will be offered next session.

Cost: $208 ($10 late fee in effect after July 1
Prerequisite: None!

No dance experience needed.

While this is a drop-in class, you must pre-register for each class you wish to attend so that we may be sure to have an appropriate number of instructors each week.
