Creative Combos - YM Weston - 03/21/2012

This fun combination was created by students in class on March 21, 2012 (YMCA).  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: Tabla Toy by Beats Antique

Start with weight on the L, R foot ready; facing audience.

This section is danced with partners.
