Datura Style Performance Skills

This class is a complement to the Datura Style technique class. We’ll be using combos learned in the 6:30 PM class to dance with others. You’ll learn how to dance in duets, trios, and quartets using Datura Style combinations you’ve learned and additional improvisational techniques I’ll teach you in this class. Topics on costuming, makeup, and crafting a performance will also be presented. As the name implies, performance opportunities are available, but they are optional! All levels of experience are welcome. You must also be registered for the entire combinations class series. No drop-ins. Enrollment will be open to new participants at the beginning of each new class series, or by teacher permission. This is an ongoing class with a monthly fee.
