Dance the Tune
Utilizing improvisation, organic movement, and drawing from a myriad of percussive dance styles including Irish step dance, Appalachian flat-footing, and Quebecois gigue, this class explores the sheer musical potential of your feet. Using imitation, idiomatic ornaments as well as alternate shoe-sounds and textures, we will learn to construct lines of rhythm imitating melody as well as create rhythmic counterpoint by setting up shoe-grooves employing contemporary musical sensibility.

No tap shoes required. Leather soled shoes are encouraged! All levels. 

Held at: Knock on Wood Tap Studio

6925 Willow St NW Suite 101 Washington DC 20012
