When vocals or instrumental sounds are combined in a way to produce a beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion (Music) When we allow our bodies to go inside the music we can access our consciousness that will shape further decisions for our presence in posture.

This class will involve exploring technical, complex, improvisational and physical movement vocabularies from African drum music to digital /experimental music and rhythms. This workshop aims to develop the dancers’ musicality, creative mind, speed, control (determination) and decisions they make as their bodies become instruments during and after the workshop.

The music in this session is very important. It will challenge, inspire, motivate you and surprise your body strength.
