DANCE WITHIN YOUR DANCE
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10 | 8PM

What is your process to find your groove? Hip hop and house dancer/choreographer Tatiana Desardouin uses her teaching method "Technique Within Your Groove" using isolations, lines, waves, rhythms, and steps to find herself within her dance. She questions how we become unique, even if we are strongly and naturally influenced by each other in our hip-hop and house communities.
