FDX: Body Isolations Workshop

WCS Body Isolations Workshop


WCS styling relies on the dancer’s ability to isolate, control, and move specific parts of the body. In order to do that successfully, one must start by learning to “talk” to each party of the body, discover the various ways it can move, and then combine those movements on top of the WCS basic actions of lead/follow, frame, and connection.

This class aims to introduce the body to isolation work (such as moving one’s shoulders independently from everything else) and to begin the process of combining that with WCS. Prior WCS experience is required (I ask that you have at least competitive-newcomer skills to attend this class).

There is NO SUCH THING as too much practice with isolations! If you have “done” them in the past, I heartily recommend you touch base with them again. Perhaps you will discover new, more varied movement patterns that can inform your dance!

$10 for adults

$5 for students with active ID
