In this workshop, you will be led through a series of drills learning folkloric and tribal moves such as the hagallah, the j-step, bold hip work, the Jamilla Flamenco step, double back, and many more. We will then build the choreography in a series of combinations that may be used on their own or as part of this choreography.
