Lucas will be throwing down his skills to provide a refined touch to your fusion dance.

Fusion - Part 1: Fundamentals:
Part of what we seek in fusion is the ability to dance with anyone, anywhere to any music. This class will start you down that road.
Fusion - Part 2: Navel Gazing and the Way of the Lazy Follow: Empty your mind and become one with the core of your partner's being. Learn to dance gracefully, floating along a stream of music and energy. Above all, don’t fight the current.
Lego Your Preconceptions:
Moves class! We’re going to take the phrases (moves) we’ve learned in other past classes, break them down into words and recombine them to make our own! If this was French class, it would be where we go from scripted conversations (Ou est la bibliotheque?) and move to basic conversation.
Preps and Steps:
If legos was conversation 101, this is your 202 class. From here, we’re going to examine what endings of moves lead naturally to what next moves. Our goal here is to take our conversations and add shades of meaning and context.
Dancing Like You but Better:
This is a major goal of fusion for many dancers. We don’t strive to dance like someone else. There is no *correct* way to dance. There are choices- some more and some less effective. In this class we’ll look at some of the choices you’re making in your dancing and take more control over when and why you make those choices.
Level up Your Following, Refining Your Leading:
From strict leading and following to role-less dance there are many levels. We play with them and use them in our dance to communicate different aspects of our partnerships. In this class, we’re going to allow you to play with some of these different levels and show some of what can happen when we add this dimension to our dance.
Jam Culture 2.0 - with Jerry Hamburgers
From lindy hop to hip hop, many styles of dance use jam circles in their community as a show and tell, a competition or even a way to give thanks and show respect. In this class, we’ll explore the ins and outs of the jam circle.
