Moonrunners: Raoul Pillay
The class will explore movement through music, stimulate students' imagination and help them get a better understanding of not only themselves, but their bodies as well.We break down steps (like jacking, skating, chase, salsa hop, sidewalk, stomp, and shuffle step etc.) to build a solid foundation that will allow students to have an in-depth understanding of the dance.
