Dance the Tune w/ Nic Gareiss
Live fiddle provided by Cleek Schrey
Utilizing improvisation, organic movement, and drawing from a myriad of percussive dance styles including Irish step dance, Appalachian flat-footing, and Quebecois gigue, this class explores the sheer musical potential of your feet. Using imitation, idiomatic ornaments as well as alternate shoe-sounds and textures, we will learn to construct lines of rhythm imitating melody as well as create rhythmic counterpoint by setting up shoe-grooves employing contemporary musical sensibility.
2:30 - 3:30pm | $25, $20 members
For dancers with some percussive dance experience (tap, Appalachian clogging, flamenco, etc.)
