A KCFAA teaching artist conducts student workshops on Modern and Jazz techniques, two primary dance forms that shape many of Alvin Ailey’s ballets. The workshop includes warm-up, jazz isolations, floor work, stretching, strengthening and choreographic instruction. Students learn elements of dance (mental alertness, sequencing, listening, following directions, attention to detail) and how they relate to developing successful life skills. Classes are offered year-round and are 35 to 55 minutes in length.
