By Hugo MIguez and Stacy Kay

Improv Intensive

The art of spontaneity is the mystery of West Coast Swing. How do those dancers come up with such impactful, creative movement while under pressure?! Together we will discover what it takes to successfully execute those unpredictable improv moments through the exploration of body mapping, levels, shape and dynamic. Improvisation is a free, seemingly unstructured, less technically strict and impulsive form that draws inspiration from everyday dance practices and influences. Improvisation is not only about creating new movement, but is also freeing your body from habitual pattern repetition. So let’s get started molding your body and mind to no longer fear moments of creativity but instead approach the opportunity with excitement!

Times:  10 and 11 am (2 hour block) Saturday
