Led by one of the UK’s foremost artist-researchers of African dance, ‘Funmi Adewole Elliott, this improvisation class will focus on the movement principles found in many African popular dance styles.  the warm-up will explore these movement principles; low centre of gravity, spine, foot, floor connections, the production of vibrations, rotations, undulations in the body. We will move on to creating pathways of motion through the body and space, dancing to and with music, and with each other.

This class is for anyone who enjoys music and reacting to sound, and who values playfulness and movement exploration. It is suitable for all levels of experience. The only prerequisites are curiosity, willingness to explore and to interact.
