Class Overview

Course Experience Level:  All

Course Description: This movement-based chair dance class will focus on a few moves for you to use the chair as an apparatus and not merely a prop, including moves with modifications or conditioning for larger bodied individuals. All are welcome. No prior dance or chair experience needed. We will end with a short routine using the chair moves learned.

Wear clothing to move and dance in (make sure knees are covered). Be ready to dance barefoot or in flexible sole shoes (like jazz flats). Bring some water!
