Embodiment Project’s Company Class
House Method emphasizes the importance of an open cipher (free-style circle) to initiate the raw energy of house dance culture. Each class challenges students with foundational house footwork, improvisation, and innovative choreography. This class also incorporates influences from several other styles of dance including classic classic hip hop, modern, and waacking, and other social street dance traditions. This class is rooted in the mission of Embodiment Project, in the ways the instructor(s) emphasize knowledge of self and hip hop culture and history.
Wednesday’s @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm @ Dance Mission Theater (3316 24th St., SF)
