NEW INTERMEDIATE SERIES! with Jody & Abby Moscaritolo
Collaborative connection and flow will focus on quality body movement and smooth transitioning from one movement to another. This directly translates into the partnership of the dance, opening new possibilities of communication between partners. Communicating through movement will help in collaborating throughout a dance, allowing for more opportunities to become creative within the partnership and with the music.
Abby has an extensive dance background spanning over 20 years. West Coast Swing has been her passion of focus for the past eight years, and her teaching spotlights quality of movement, partnering, and having fun. Jody has been teaching ballroom and partner dancing since 2005. His teaching niche in WCS focuses largely on advanced collaborative connection and momentum technique, applying music theory to "big picture" musicality and improvised choreography, and smooth transitional energy and movement. Jody's philosophy about West Coast Swing is that it's the most fun when both partners get to "play" and contribute to the creativity and he infuses that philosophy into his teaching!
DJ & Host Dave Moldover coordinates all the festivities with support from the diverse and talented DJP team. As always the lessons, buffet, unlimited hugs, smiles and all kinds of good fun are included in the $15 cover. ($8 for full time undergrads).
A fantastic line up of guest instructors for intermediate level class series!
