How to Get Along at a Fusion Dance (13:30-15:30 @ Huis van Puck)
In each dance form there are basic assumptions both partners come in with that make the dance flow. We’ll cover a sampling of these expectations that you might encounter to both expand your technique toolbox and to give you a fresh look at what you might already be doing. Our goal is for you to be able to both recognize and alter your default patterns.
Endless Possibilities (15:30-17:30 @ Huis van Puck)
Drawing together multiple dance styles means even more ways to connect and move, and all that open-endedness can be intimidating! Let’s dig into where we can find opportunities for new ideas (especially from the follow!) without getting lost in the endless possibilities.
So What is Fusion Anyway? (19:30 – 20:30 @ Flor de Fango)
What does it mean to “fuse”? What does it mean to be a “fusion dancer”? This class will be both theory and practical (we’ll move a lot and talk!), covering some of the main ways we think about fusing styles of music and movement.
