Do you feel less confident with solo dancing than you would like? Do you LOVE solo dancing and want a few more tools in your toolkit? Are you not bothered either way but would like to be told repeatedly and sincerely how amazing you are? This skillshare is for you. We’ll be looking at using body control and self-connection to be your own partner, building and layering movements, and exploring momentum within your body. (Optional bonus quest: solo turns!)

BABY DRAGON FLOW

Jess and Greg: The structures commonly referred to as "the pelvis" and "the spine" are, in fact, a baby dragon. This skillshare is an opportunity to meet and make friends with your and your dance partner's baby dragon and to draw on their indomitable will to dance to find flow and continuity in your own movement.
