DESCRIPTION:

Day 2 - Feb 19th 10-1pm
BUILD YOUR OWN CHOREOGRAPHY
Choreography is a great way to experiment and better understand you and your partner(s) movement, but can also be an incredible tool for co-creation and connection for your local community! 
In this 3 hour class, we will cover various group transitions (canons, retrogrades, etc.) that will help ease the organization of your dance. 
We will not only connect with our hoops, but we will connect with our MUSIC! Throughout the class, students will receive several emotions to portray throughout the piece they create. By portraying various emotions along with the same movements, the student(s) can better understand the importance of emotion and how it can affect you and your partner(s) dance.
After we have covered transitions, divided into groups and have completed the creation process, we can then begin to share.
*This is an ADVANCED LEVEL class. Students participating must have taken Day 1 classes or have extensive knowledge in hoop tricks or an intermediate level in dance.*
