WORKSHOP


‘Lights, Camera, Hoop!’ — This is a class focused on performing for the camera and filming flow. Everyone in class pairs up and gets the chance to be the videographer and the “performer.” Prior to the performing and film partner exercises, I cover performance technique and help elevate everyone’s camera skills. By learning how to be a better performer for the camera, students will naturally learn how to become better performers for their audiences, because the camera is just like having an audience. I had so many people ask me about tips for taking videos and I think everyone would love to learn how to do that, especially in such a beautiful location. This class will definitely be more flow/dance based.
