This course will include a Saidi folkloric cane choreography and intermediate level technique, working on the hips, arms, abdominals (belly!), footwork and more. We will begin by revising previous intermediate technique to maintain that strong foundation, progressing over the weeks on to more complex moves, combinations and layering. The course is led by award-winning dancer and choreographer Meilyn and will give you;

– Stronger control over your dance and body.
– Time to go over and perfect moves.
– Ability to isolate and layer moves.
– A higher level of choreography.
