Adult Street Style/Freestyle/Flow
Our classically trained dance instructors developed this this upbeat class for adults in a street dance style that incorporates flow. Your body is an instrument through which art is created. The quality of this art depends on the physical qualities and skills you’ll gain in class! Flow is a term to describe a moving meditation of manipulating props such as your hands, hats, hoops, or even nunchuks and other items! Revel in creativity as you learn about and practice prop techniques that improve dexterity and proprioception. Share the joy of movement and self-expression, and tap into your unlimited potential. The state of flow creates new pathways in the brains, and offers an alternative perspective on movement, inside the body as well as outside the body as you move through space. It is also an exciting way to gain fitness by increasing heart rate, agility, and flexibility. Based on several dance style genres including contemporary, jazz, funk, modern, breakdance and hip hop.
