Saturday, June 25: 12:30-2:30 pm: Finding Your Fusion: Intro to Eclectic Fusion
Eclectic Fusion is a dance philosophy developed by Draconis, which is designed to guide dancers who are looking to define their dance style. In a world saturated with popular styles of fusion dance, it is often times hard to pave your own way and find a movement quality that speaks to you. Combinations will be sampled from a variety of dance textures and styles, with emphasis on contrast of movements, movement classification, and methods to incorporating them into your current dance practice.
Skill level: Beginner and Intermediate.
