Afro Cuban Modern Dance Workshop with Malpaso Dance Company

August 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

| $30

The Cuban technique of modern dance is a fusion of North American Modern Dance (including (Sokolov), Graham, Limon, Cunningham), European ballet, and traditional Afro-Cuban dances and rhythms. The central teaching of the class is based around contraction and release technique, combined with spine undulation movements from Afro-Cuban dance styles. The across the floor combinations encourage a focus on rhythm of and musicality. The combination of influences (American, European and Afro) manifest within Cuban dance provides the students a unique (transcultural) experience of movement.
