ABOUT THE CLASS:
Come learn about the performance art of using the body as a percussive instrument, as seen in STOMP!
Stripping music down to its core, rhythm, and reconnecting it to the body. The use of your own body as an instrument and tool to generate percussive movement allowing for creative self expression. During this class we'll come together as a group to play and move with one another — listening to oneself and others around you. Opening up your ears and bodies to collaborate with other individuals.
