Dance As Self-Defense
Dance As Self-Defense is my new baby. A completely new way of thinking about both martial arts and dance. I've taken all the funnest stuff in martial arts and put it into dance games. Think: A safe way to work with maximum momentum. Stop struggling and start dancing! Each game plays with principles of movement and perception. We will learn the W.A.L.T.Z. (Warriors and Lovers Traditional Zeitgeist), and the S.A.M.B.A. (Situational Awareness Momentum-Balance Activation).
These dance styles are straight-up short-cuts to advanced martial arts skills. One of the beautiful things about this method is it by-passes the normal emotional identity blocks people have, thereby giving students an opportunity to experience movement in new ways. If you would like to learn martial arts through dance, this is a great entry point. If you would like to bust your martial arts training out of its neat little boxes, this is the ticket. Or, if you just want to have a whole bunch of fun, this is the class for you!
