This workshop is part of the foundations dance & knowledge workshop series at Crossover Dance Studio. With the support of City of Sydney, these workshops will be offered for the first time for only $30 with limited spots available.
Foundations aims to delve more deeply into, and facilitate the learning of dance history, culture and its community aspects, in addition to the standard teaching of the dance style's own distinct techniques and foundations in a safe, open-minded and accepting space. Foundations workshops are taught over 3-hours, catered to new and novice students with time for Q&A, video viewing and other supplementary material.
Taught by @SydneyTutting
Tutting is a dance style that is based on creating different shapes, lines, angles & patterns, originally inspired by Egyptian hieroglyphics. The amount of things that can be created using this style is only limited by one's imagination and creativity, and Tutting today draws inspiration from many different sources and with many different approaches.
This workshop aims to teach the foundational tools and concepts of Tutting to allow students to establish their basics and work towards freestyle and creative use of the style. This workshop is open to anyone interested in learning or improving their Tutting, including beginners or those new to the style.
In addition to learning about the history and theoretical components of Tutting, the class will also cover three different approaches to the style from three members of Sydney Tutting. Please note workshop content can be subject to change.
