About the Workshop
Jazz and the Art of Timing in Your Dancing
Level: Intermediate and above
Pre-requisites: all dancers taking this workshop should be able to demonstrate 3 swing outs & a circle, common turns/side-passes, and competency with both 6 & 8 count rhythms.
Get ready to challenge your understanding of "counts" in this 90-minute workshop with Alyssa and Hussain. We will be taking moves you already know and messing with them in exciting ways-- shortening, lengthening and even shifting the timing. We'll talk about how both partners can use these shifts to respond to the music AND each other. If we're feeling really spicy, we might get rid of counts altogether, who knows.
"Time isn't the main thing. It's the only thing."
This is a Rotating Partner format workshop & students will change partners throughout class. No partner is required to sign up.
