WHAT THEY ARE PRESENTING
Rhythmic Conversations is an exploration of music and dance using basic elements such as body, action, space, time, energy, rhythm and more, to create sound and movement phrases. Throughout this class, rhythms will be created from the body to allow conversation and communication as these rhythms are being played. We will be building dance language and movement literacy as we explore the conversations between music and dance.
