The Essentials. Embrace and Walk

A collection of lessons to help you build your base stronger, ready for developing your dance upon it. After you have practiced these lessons you will have created a solid, comfortable point from where to improvise sequences and add musical interpretation to your dance, while being able to always return to the zero point, that is, stop moving and dance through just embracing. Then start it all over again.


Recommended study time for this collection is 7 weeks.
