Cross Back but Make It Choreography

Wednesday, June 28, 2023 from 5:30 - 7:30pm in the Cathedral  •  Cost: $70


Description: This workshop started with a cross back wrap and morphed into a deep dive of choreography options.  How do you get into the wrap?  What do you do when you arrive?  How do you exit?  This is mostly split panel choreography and not all in footlocks.  There is also a dash of theory if you enjoy that bit of this artform.  We are not here to reinvent the wheel, but to look at how any wrap can inspire new sequences.  You will walk away with different options and new ideas!

Prerequisites: VA level 2b on vertical. It’s also helpful to be able to invert in crossback with footlocks though not required.
