Dance Workshop for Students
Today was the first day back for students at John Britto's Dance Studio. As a treat for them, we taught a couple modern dance classes, which they seemed to really enjoy...everyone had a lot of fun! Some of them had been taking classes at the studio for a few years while others had come for their very first time. In a way, it was refreshing to teach a group of younger dancers because I think we sometimes forget how students of different ages learn and process new material. This was great exposure for them movement wise and also very educating for them as dance viewers in general. I think the young dance students who were part of the workshop and who come to see the upcoming concert will have a very different and more fulfilling experience because they will be able to make connections to the movements they see on stage.
