April 15th- Video Viewing Night at 7pm. On April 15th, the Advanced level class will become a sit-down, hour-long workshop on how to learn from watching dance on video. As many of you know, Arielle has learned much of her "extraneous" dance disciplines from watching Youtube videos. In this workshop, Arielle will explain her autodidactic tactics to critically understanding and applying what we see on the screen into movements we can replicate ourselves. Learn how to expand your dance vocabulary without making a move! This workshop is included in our punch card and unlimited month passes and is in lieu of the technique class usually offered at this time. No registration is necessary, just show up April 15th at 7pm. The Advanced class will resume its regular material as of April 22nd.
