===FACILITATED PRACTICE.
Learn to Follow and Lead, learn readiness for both=Switchrole. DJ'd to signal Change of Partners every 2 Songs. We're leaving "Switching" (the word and the idea) as just a moment of roletrade action behind, shifting to the Mindset/Skillset of Switchrole: a constant throughout every dance with all partners. Grow your Switch mechanics: interdependent proprioception that makes Dancing Switch smooth and clear with consistency. SDS is NOT a class, it's a facilitated container for building up experience in Dancing Switch regularly. Teachers answer questions and monitor group spatial navigation as duets practice Dancing Switch. Catchup your skills in another dancerole; integrate Switch Etiquette into your dancefloor habits.
===MUSIC:
AltPop, R&B, HipHop, Trap, Dubstep, ModBlues. NOTE: Fusion Dancing is 2+ PureForm Hybrid Partner Dancing which uses Blues/Swing as the baseline then incorporates and improvises using other partner forms, in practice worldwide for over 15years. Styles used in Fusion off of the Blues/Swing base fit into ~60bpm music and static area/slot-work floor navigation such as zouk, salsa, tango and kizomba. We point attention to respecting the history of these dance forms and the cultures/musics from which they come, while finding contemporary, consentual, inclusive, intersectional interpretations and new movement discoveries in these forms.
===TEACHERS:
HDM's Ali Woolwich and HDM All Stars.
