Gooey Pop and Lock Drills and Combinations – 10-12PM
This technique and drilling-intense class will focus on combining smooth and effortless looking pathways contrasted with surprising and unexpected pops and locks. After this high energy class, students will walk away with several versatile combinations that work great for dancing to electronic music or drum solos.
Fluidity in Motion – 1-3PM
The focus in this class is deepening one’s connection to the floor and ability to move outside of their personal space. This workshop will focus on not only on foot patterns but will cover how to gain balance and grace while traveling across the floor. We will begin with a modern and ballet influenced warm-up to focus on proper alignment and move on to traveling foot patterns across the floor. Several complex foot patterns will be drilled and eventually building on top of them adding isolations and arm work.

Fined Tuned Movements – 10-12PM
Overhaul your movement, Kami Liddle style. Refine movements and transitions so that they are extremely isolated, fluid and clean – learn to think and move from the inside out. We will also focus on crafting very subtle micro movements that allow you to move extremely fast while adding a wonderful pop of contrast to your dancing.
Body Geometry – 1-3PM
Dance is all about creating shapes with the body. In this workshop we will focus on manipulating basic shapes with the body to order to create unique lines, angles annd silhouettes. Considering spatial transformation, symmetrical vs. asymmetrical movement, time and dynamics, students will be given tools to use these concepts to create their own movements phrases.
