Creative Combos - YWCA - 01/27/2012
This fun combination was created by students in class on January 27, 2012 (YWCA). We began with each student drawing a movement from a basket. Then students were paired up to create a short combo using each move. Finally, all combos were strung together to create the following choreography.
Works with: Pieces from the Whole by Trent Reznor or Belgrade Riddim by Sub Swara
