The original inspiration for this workshop came from listening to the concerns of newer teachers learning to teach beginning level classes. They found that in their experience there was not enough material, when following the prescribed order and curriculum, to teach an hour long class. They were talking too much, explaining too much, in order to fill the time, and unable to keep the participants engaged and moving throughout.
The current version can serve both teachers and students alike.
The purpose and inspiration is to be empowered to create and/or participate in classes that are rich with the development of physical skills and mind body integration. And to be engaged both physically and mentally at any level.
The class will review and play with the underlying movement patterns inherent in the learned choreography. We will build upon and layer our movement skills. We will review and depend on concepts to support our ability to create links and transitions from movement to movement; exercise to exercise, playing with multiple variations and choices and, time allowing share with each other what we discover along the way.
