HipHo Contempo Class Once Again


So I just started teaching a summer performance workshop for teens.  The awesome part is that we will be working in both the woods and the studio, alternating between Redwood Heights Recreation Center and the Redwood Regional Park in order to create a site-specific collaborative work between myself and the teens.  Today I began a little hip-hop choreography on this fun piece of music. Here’s a short video of me working on it in the studio prior to class.
