YOUTH ONLY: House Dance Nation
I will be providing a few of the most popular House Dance steps for beginning level students AGES:1-18years old. We will work on movements, as a workshop style and I will give time for each of you to practice and guide each student through the newly-learned step.
*House Dance Nation is a sharing space. The main purpose of House music and dance is to unite all people and make every feel comfortable to let loose and get down in an environment where all feel comfortable. We do not base our movements on judgement, as we move towards freedom.
House Dance is a style of club dancing that was created in the mid-70s after the death of disco. "House Music is Disco's Revenge" according to Frankie Knuckles, a founding creator of House Music. It is a style unique to the underground scenes of cities around the world.
The styles and movement are rarely seen in many parts of the mid-west these days, however anyone that may have had the privilege of visiting nightclubs or some of the daytime House events ~or Rituals ~ in larger cities such as New York's Coney Island Dance Party and Chicago's Smart Bar might ask themselves "what is this funky movement everyone's doing, and why haven't I seen THAT in my city?!?!" Well, now's your chance to get acquainted with what you've been missing out on... and no worries, you really haven't been missing out... While you sitting back being a wallflower, your soul has been dancing. NOW is the time to learn some new movements. No longer will your Wallflowerness exist... ~ It's Time to get down.
Description of House Dance:
The movement is comparable to break dancing, hip-hop or even ancient styles such as afro-carribean dance, yet the movement involves a lot of foot work. We will explore some movements such as, or similar to the loose legs, voguing, and the Charleston.

I've taught FreeDanceSpace, an EXCO class for two summers. I've traveled to Spain, New York, Chicago, England, Mexico to name a few in search of the way that people move, what moves them and to learn how I can move like them.
