In association with [ZØGMA]:
Urban Style Step Dance Workshop
In this percussive workshop, participants will learn the basics of this contemporary style of step-dancing, which blends step dance and body percussion – starting at the feet then gradually moving through the rest of the body, allowing it to become a full instrument. Working with specific rhythms and poly-rhythms, this active approach will keep participants moving throughout the entire class. This workshop is for anyone who wants to have fun.
