RHYTHMN IS GONNA GETCHA with Dallas Fox

Changing lanes on the super highway of your chosen music

Understand the landscape of the music you are going to choreograph too.  Burlesque to the beat, rhythms, melodies and patterns in a music track and how to make opportunities of accents and highlights in your choreography.  Choosing to use the beats or rhythm can be obvious but transitioning to use the melody or working with/without lyrics can be tricky.   There are some clues to help you strip apart your music and be in charge of where you place your choreography.  We will explore this with cha cha cha and rhumba rhythms.

Please bring water bottle, sweat towel, comfortable dance shoes or pumps (barefoot also fine) comfy clothing.  Note pad & pen if you wish to take notes.

Open to all levels, all bodies, all styles
