Dynamics, Rhythm and Texture

This is a physical contemporary class, which will involve strong, complex and technical sequences in and out of the floor, focusing on performance and stamina. Improvisation will also be explored as part of self-development.

The desired outcomes for the workshop are to develop the dancers' creative mind, drive from passion, determination, strength, musicality and most importantly an intention and honesty in whatever choice they make throughout the session.

OTHER WORKSHOPS OF Alleyne Dance

Afro-Fusion

African Dance fused with Contemporary Styles

Afro-Fusion blends several energetic styles to create into this unique amalgamation with influences of Zimbabwean, Nigerian and South African traditional forms and Western dance styles. It is a fun motivating aerobic dance class syncopating movements to a variety of music.

Participants will develop creative expression as well as improve mobility, strength, flexibility, coordination and sense of rhythm. Isolation and articulation exercises exploring the undulation of the spine are another focus of the class. Participants learn phrases based on the warm-up that will challenge and form movement interpretation and accuracy. Music and rhythm is an important aspect of the class. Kristina and Sadé believe music inspire the heart and soul.
