Participants learn how to use the basics of sand dance and hand percussion to seamlessly improvise with other dancers and musicians, develop listening skills and create counterpoint rhythms, while applying math concepts to the music they make with their bodies. The goal is to enjoy creating a musical landscape that may be incorporated into future performance opportunities. Hand and foot percussionists will also learn to contribute to or provide musical score as accompaniment for other artists (dancers, vocalists, spoken word artists and other instrumentalists). The prevailing goal is to guide and encourage students to refine their own individual voice and experiment with artistic combinations, rhythm, movement and improvisation in collaboration with other artists.

In this class, you'll learn how to mix pictures, shapes, typography, color and (most importantly!) your ideas into powerful visuals that can inform, influence and even inspire people.
