The Caterpillar Diagonal - Kae’s Movement Dialect The Diagonal formation was born in the tight confines of a San Francisco cafe where FatChance regularly performed a long time ago. Following in the footsteps of those dancers you will learn this unique formation in a new way! Take this dynamic formation everywhere from tiny cafes to the big stage!
Cafe Style We will break down the formation, pick what movements go well with it, effectively use that, and learn what space that formation works best in.
2pm - 4pm

Fake It Till You Make It Let’s step out of the classroom and get onto the stage! Learn the fine art of crafting an ATS® performance set. You will be challenged with a set of music and performance situations based on real life (a small party, a big outdoor festival, etc.) We will form small groups, discuss and drill through the songs in the set, choose who is dancing to which song, rehearse again, critique the progress and then present our virtual show.
