MORE DROP-IN DANCE

NEW! Starts october 7, 2019!
Rhythmically Speaking Jazz Class

This drop-in class is inspired by three ideas at the heart of jazz and other American social dance-inspired forms - groove, interaction and improvisation. Groove leads the way into exploring the embodiment of jazz and jazz-related musics, from digging a good downbeat to syncopation to complex polyrhythms. With that sense of groove as a base, dancers can open up to deeper interaction with themselves, others and the music. With a solid understanding and appreciation of groove and interaction, dancers can slide into the playful joy of improvisation, creating musically and socially-responsive movement in the moment. Rhythmically Speaking values and situates jazz dance as an amalgam of Africanist and Europeanist ideas with contributions from many other parts of the world, and gives particular focus to Africanist base elements including groundedness and high-affect juxtaposition of dynamics while putting jazz and jazz-related musics at the center of class. Erinn's classes always include a thorough warm-up, innovative across-the-floor sequences and groovy combinations that inspire dancers to connect with themselves, one another, the music and the moment. All are welcome at this open teen/ adult class that skews intermediate/ advanced in level.

Mondays 7:00-8:30pm

Teaching Artist Erinn Liebhard
