In this workshop we will learn some fun and complex moves, techniques for moving with them and then dance with each other. We will connect to our fellow dancers while moving and spinning in formation, communicate without words and create dynamic dance together, on the spot!
This workshop will suit dancers from all genres interested in group work or beautiful, interesting moves and concepts.
