Project Description: Collaborative Learning for Physical Prowess (on the dance floor) or, How to Dance Like a Boss
Knowing that many people would like to dance but feel too shy or inhibited to take dance classes, this project seeks to create fun, inclusive, and safe environments for people to learn to dance. These classes upset the power hierarchy of traditional dance classes by empowering anyone to become a dance teacher. A selection of people who are not professional dancers or dance teachers (but who like to dance) will research and present their favorite ‘How To Dance’ YouTube videos and lead us all in learning the steps/choreography.
Presented in May, 2016 at Performance Works Northwest with guest presenters Leif J. Lee, Tonisha Toler, Padraic O'Meara, and Jens Hauge.
