Dance to the Beat of the Drum 8.0!

Here we go – 8.0! We are so happy to be running this event again in January 2018!!!!

If you are curious about this event and not sure what to expect, its a multilevel class with something for everyone. It provides a foundation to learning Middle Eastern rhythms with dance technique which is very important as we use these rhythms every time we dance to a song! It helps give you some tools for listening and identifying rhythms and applying movement. Tim Gerwing provides valuable insight on how to identify these rhythms and breaks them down so that you can see how they are formed. Regardless of your level, this workshop offers a lot of information.

January 21 2018, 12 – 3pm
Early Bird Pricing til January 10th $60, $70 after.
