Come explore the ways dances of the divine spirits of Cuba and Haiti can inform the essence and personality of contemporary modern dance. This fusion class will use traditional folklore movements from deities such as Elegua, representing play and passageways and Oshun, representing flow and beauty, as a base to color and inform modern dance warm up, across the floor combinations and choreography.
