2018 Summer JAMboree Workshops
Welcome to the 2018 Summer JAMboree Workshop page! We have worked extremely hard on this summer's line up. On this page you will find full length descriptions of each workshop! Instructors are listed in no specific order.
Universal Connection Through Dance: In this integrative workshop, students will focus on connection, the most important part of not only movement arts, but of life. Students will work together with one another to create a meditative connection through dance and movement. This class will enable students to expand their repertoire of body movement and the connection needed to achieve a more stable foundation. The idea will essentially make moving with a prop more seamless, grounded, and immersive. We will use imagery, dance, and anatomy to unlock a more dynamic flow. This is an ALL LEVELS class, perfect for everyone, no matter where you are in your movement journey. **NOTE: This class is geared towards building a more solid foundation as a hooper and dance.
Sassy, Sensual Hooping: It’s time to bring sassy back! In this class, hoopers will learn to unlock their inner queen/king/everything in between by learning a sassy, sensual hoop dance combo. This class will not only build upon foundational movements to make them more fluid, but we will also delve deeply into dance & hoop technique for easier transitions, movements, and a healthier body. Along with technique, students will engage in exercises to help with becoming more confident in their bodies and performance. The class will wrap up with a short routine integrating all of these elements. This is an ALL LEVELS class, though best suited for students with a basic understanding of foundational hooping.
Transitional Flow: This workshop will consist of various tips, & tricks to help the fluidity of your flow. By unlocking new transitions that focus around rotational flow, and body language, the goal of this workshop is to help you find the infinite amount of ways your tricks can all be sequenced together. Then figuring out how to smooth out the edges in between tricks. I plan on helping you add a little spice to your step, and a little funk to your flow!
I will also explain the importance of musicality & characterization, how to tell a story through movement.
Artistry in Motion:
Your body is a masterpiece! This class will be a blend of hoop technique and dance inspired choreography. Each student will learn a sequence combining a variety of unique hoop tricks and transitions that blend effortlessly with detailed footwork, arm placement, levels, direction changes and overall presence. We will learn how to move with intention while maintaining total awareness of our body in space.
Get ready to move…a lot. During this class we will explore the elements – earth, water, fire, ether – and how each element effects our flow state. This class emphasizes intention, flow, continuous movement and most importantly, dancing for yourself.
