“Living in the Break”: In this workshop, we’ll focus on the idea of “breaking the beat” or “breaking the pattern.” We’ll look to the unique terminologies of movement offered by tap dance and jazz music for thinking about “the break.” Participants will learn some tap steps and patterns (no tap shoes required – bring them if you have them). We’ll also start to think about how improvising within percussive dance can challenge the ways we think and move through our histories and presents.
