As told in an African proverb, "If you can talk you can sing, if you can walk you can dance," and in this course, we will dance to celebrate special occasions and just to have fun. Beginning with the ballet barre (a chair or counter will do fine), we will releve, plie, and stretch our bodies from head to toe. Next we will head to the dance floor (your living room or other space), where we will move to a different beat, song, and style each week. We will end class with some stretches that can be done on the floor or in a chair. No prior dance experience is necessary, just a willingness to explore the exciting and challenging ways we can move our bodies. • Active participation.
