Not only will you develop your technical knowledge but you will also begin to introduce performativity into your practice allowing for greater expression. Alongside this your body will develop an increased physicality including core strength and balance; allowing you to have greater movement efficiency. You will also be encouraged to work more with the live music and given freedom to play with timings and counts.
