Classes and Performances
Currently I am not teaching on a weekly schedule until further notice. I am available for private instruction, seminars or as a guest instructor. Please inquire through private message for rates. 

Class Offerings Include:

 Balancing: Thinking Outside the Box

1-2 hours

Learn balancing techniques that will improve: posture, isolations, movement control and awareness of your body and surroundings. It doesn't matter if students have the desire to dance with something on their head in a performance or not. This class will give students balance training to gain improvements in their dance movements. Vertical movement (up and down) is easier than horizontal movement (side to side). Vertical movements: Undulations-Up and down both accented and smooth, Belly Rolls, Pelvic Lifts & Drops, Chest L & D, Elevation changes, Back bends, Forward Bends, Shoulder shrugs, Up and Down Hip Shimmies, etc. Horizontal movements: Chest and Hip slides, Chest and Hip circles, Side to Side Undulations, Mayas, Tunisian Hip Shimmies, Snake Arms, etc. Class includes horizontal and vertical movement drills and combinations and a few Caveats from the instructor.

Instructor provides safe equipment for balancing.
