Modern Dance – Global Water Dances

Mondays, 6:00 – 7:10 p.m.

This mixed level Modern Dance course will focus on natural full body flowing movement styles that can be modified for various dance experiences and fitness levels.  Class will consist of shorter technique exercises that condition the body and breaks down the style and steps, as well as choreography that can be performed at our local Global Water Dances performances in June (optional), or learned simply for enjoyment, fitness, and artist experiences.

Learn more about Global Water Dances at https://globalwaterdances.org/ and contact the instructor for examples of the style of class.
