In-person Event
In a typical class, participants move to the music, synchronize body actions with musical rhythms, and follow their partner’s movements. Participants will also interact with other people and objects, react quickly to random signals, echo movement sequences, and follow verbal instructions and musical cues in order to complete activities. Some activities are structured and oriented, while some activities are improvised with creativity.
