Jasmyn Fyffe Dance: Jasmyn Fyffe
This workshop will take students through improvisational ideas, choreographic exploration and phrase work with a focus on how to approach physicality, musicality and variation of texture and dynamic in the body. We will explore the use of the floor, the use of other bodies and structures in the space and how the connection of our energies can drive and fuel the movement.
