Join me to #GiveDANCE

Dancing "The Communual Experience" teaches basics to connect us as Dancers. Whether in the studio, on the street and in Communal rites, students learn class decorum from entering the classroom, warming up the body, progressions versus cattle-class crossing and class combos involving "dancing in the wings" along with group choreo -- learning how to work with one another...these basics remain a solid source for teaching and inspiration in conducting my classes, yet to see transformation is its own just reward. ~R. Califa, Professtional Teaching Artist
