For the first time ever, the entire Head Movement series will be taught in person! Head Movement Level 1 is a 4-part series on solo technique, and this is the first of them! I, Devon will be guiding you through a playful workshop consisting of strengthening, safety awareness, and conditioning that will lead up to patterns and creativity in later months!
There are three levels, each containing four workshops- a total of 12 workshops in the entire curriculum! Join me for the first of four in the Level 1 series!
When: February 25th, Level 1: 12:30 - 2:30 PM, Level 2: 3:00 - 5:00 PM

Where: The Avalon Ballroom, Boulder

All workshops within level one are good for folks who are completely new to Brazilian zouk head movement as well as seasoned dancers wanting to refine and drill their technique.
Is this class good for leads?
Yes! Before you lead head movement, you should know what you're leading. When leads take head movement classes, they gain awareness of the mechanics and direction required to create the comfiest experience and avoid injury to themselves and their partner.
