About the class - These classes are a safe and fun environment to discover a new dance format. Led by Robyn, you will learn how to execute the moves distinctive to the format while playing finger cymbals (zillar/sagat) and apply principles key to the format. You will be taught how to lead and follow cues to create unique dance improvisation. Along with covering movement technique, we will also learn about their cultural origins. The classes are also a great opportunity to meet new people and enter into a whole new community of dancers around the world!
What to wear - Please wear a fitted top so that your movements can be clearly seen. We wear practice pants (fitted trousers with a bit of flare) or leggings for class so that you can see our feet & knees. You can wear something similar, leggings or comfortable trousers that allow a lot of free movement and allow us to see your posture. We prefer to dance barefoot, but allow dance feet/shoes/sandals. Hip scarfs (non-jangly noisy ones) are a nice accent but optional!
What else to bring - Most importantly a positive attitude! Also a bottle of water and finger cymbals if you have them (we have some spare sets that we can loan for a small fee or sell on to you).
Before participating in your first session you will be asked to enroll with us and complete a Fitness to Dance form and a Learner Agreement. Click on the links to be taken to these. It is advised as always that you speak to a physician before taking up any new physical activities.
