March 28th to March 31st 2019
The Southern California and Global Movement Communities are realizing that the walls between movement styles are disappearing day by day. This is not a dilution of the roots, but an appreciation of the common ground we have. An appreciation of the things that we can teach to and learn from each other.
This year we are digging deeper: We are increasing accessibility by including separate Beginner and Intermediate-Advanced classes. We are also Taking Back The Jazz by delving into the rooted, cultural forms of many styles that we only see the performance aspect of. Wayne James of Brothers In Jazz and Ana Laidley of Samba In Motion will be our guides on this adventure.
Capoeira Batuque Santa Ana, Loftoeira, Firestorm Free Running, Strength Project, Academy of International Dance, and our partners are taking this opportunity to bring the various movement communities together to celebrate and learn from one another.
