Repertoire - Urban
Urban Dance Repetoire
This workshop will focus on repertoire from a piece called, "Sit back ya'll", choreographed by Julia Gutsik and Raul Guevara. "Sit back ya'll", premiered in Calgary in 2008 and has been presented in venues across Montreal and Ottawa since. Vocabulary includes fast foot work and 3-dimensional patterns that move in and out of the floor. This is a high energy, dynamic piece that will keep you on your hands and feet- literally!
