Conversation Without Borders

As both a leader and follower Dawn represented a way of connecting with music and her partner beyond the boundaries of lead and follow. What are you paying attention to when you dance? How are you feeling during a social dance? What is the music making you say, and how can you turn that into amazingly unique partner dancing?

Haus of Hop

(2 hours with Adam & Josh) - Open Level.

The "Haus of Hop" is a Jazz dance group formed by Adam Brozowski and Joshua Maclean in 2016 reflecting their joint interest in Jazz dance, music and their community legacies during the Harlem renaissance.

We will play with these three simple elements in class in many ways and empower dancers to use their own voice and to learn to speak Jazz.
