Dance Freely

Improvise in a Playful and Authentic Way!

Created by Yefferson Mejia Rodriguez - Dancer/Mover

"]

Students: 1191, Price: Free

This class is about playfulness, soulfulness and the feelings in dancing. We'll use improvisation (freestyle) as the main tool to express our essence, as it allows us to eliminate the factor of judgment and ratings.

But the most important subject, the essence of this class, is playfulness. Whenever we are playing, like when we were little kids, we don't care about outcomes or esthetics. All that matter is being present and having fun as we express ourselves.

In this class We'll learn how to control movement, how to recognize tonalities (sounds) and how to express what we feel with music in the physical world. So that when we actually dance, we just play and sing as we truly feel the music in our bodies.

This class is for any human being that lives and breathes, as it focuses on the developing expression, essence and feelings in music. It' doesn't matter if you've never danced in front of anyone, or if you've been ripping the dance floor for the past 10 years, you still be able to add value while playing.
