Workshops with 2015 U.S. National Pole Champion, Brandon Grimm
Held at Divine Movement Dance - Seattle location
Floor Flips and Twists: Transitional Ground Acrobatics for Polers
Sunday, November 4, 3:30pm-5:00pm, $60
This workshop will start with a modern dance based warm up, loosening up joints and getting dancers comfortable with the floor. We will start by exploring different types of ground-rolls to avoid hard knocks and landings. Dancers will learn different movement styles, pulling inspiration from contemporary/modern dance, capoeira, break-dancing, and gymnastics. We will learn stationary and across-the-floor moves as well as movement on and off the pole. Beginner/Intermediate level.
Choreography and Connection
Sunday, November 4, 5:15pm-6:45pm, $60
This class is all about Musicality and Emoting. Students will learn choreography to a slow paced, contemporary song where timing is everything. Moves will be based on music's vocals, syncopated timing, and overall theme. This class will hopefully get students comfortable dancing on the ground as well as low flying air moves.
Brandon is also available for private lessons on Friday, November 2, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
