A14238: How to Dance to (Almost) Anything in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)
With enough practice, anyone can learn a TikTok dance, but how do you dance to a song that doesn't have a specific set of dance moves to follow? This interactive class will have you up and moving as we explore how to identify a song's rhythm, the fundamentals of moving to a beat, and simple moves that you can pull out whenever the need to dance arises! If you're looking to learn a formal dance like tango or salsa, this is NOT the class for you - this class is all about figuring out how your body likes to move to music, whether you're dancing alone in your bedroom or at a (socially distanced) party. This class is open to everyone regardless of dancing experience, gender identity, or physical ability.
