What is your personal relationship to rhythm? Do you desire a deeper connection to it? Do you want to get better at picking up choreography in class, get out of a freestyle/improvisation rut, be a better dancer at the club, bring something new to the cypher, or simply improve your physical sense of musicality? Each week is a new playlist diverse in style and rhythmic patterns. The class begins with a structured warm up to get the body ready to respond to guided improvisation that will challenge how you listen to, interpret, and physically communicate music. You will witness many interpretations of the same concept through dancing with and for each other. This class is open to all styles of dancer and all levels of experience. Come with an open mind and a desire to grow and get down.
