Shirley Temple: The Littlest Rebel (~2 minutes)

Savion Glover, Cid Glover & Dormeshia Sumbry Tap Dance (~5 minutes)


Dance and Lighting – Pilobolus (~6 minutes)

This is a class video that includes:

1) a warm up that you can do at home (with similar aspects to our class warmup); and,

2) a phrase that you can do at home (a few sections with an array of levels). The first section you can do even if you don’t have very much dance space in your home! 

You may want to challenge yourself and learn sections that are a bit more advanced. However, by no means do you need to do the phrase as fast as they do!

Use music that you like, take the tempo YOU need, and enjoy the flow of it!
