Class Topic:
Maintaining Flow and Preserving Energy
Join Virginia to explore how to keep your body moving and grooving while also managing your energy. We will talk about how body parts work together and separately within various blues vocabulary (isolations and stillness) and how to capitalize on arm movement and facial expressions. Of course all of these are tools for musicality and one of Virginia’s favorite elements of blues: showmanship.
