This "Afro-foundations" class seeks to ground us in traditional Guinean and Haitian movement, posture, strength and joy found through dancing & having fun with your friends!. The fun continues when we follow it up with a Dancehall class, utilizing conscious and woman-positive dance music from both Jamaica and local artists, in which we will learn some of La Profesora's moves and, most importantly, explore your own dance style.
New! Come to our Inspiration India's end of 2013 performance on Monday,
December 9th. Located at Ashkenaz Dance & Music Center at 6:30 pm.
Kathak, the classical style of North India, is a dynamic storytelling dance which employs gesture, mime and expression to depict the epic fables of mythological India. The class will be taught by Antonia Minnecola.
Lyric (taught by Isabella Qureshi) is a dance born in America, popularized by TV shows like "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Dancing With the Stars"
Both styles will give the dancer an experience of mixing powerful with graceful movement, while offering an opportunity to explore word rhythms and musicality.
Join DanceVersity's Performance Ensemble and perform in traditional costumes at multiple performances throughout the Bay for the Spring.
Note: Invitation to ensemble is extended to those registered in our Winter and/or Fall session ONLY
