Series Lesson: w/ Athena Shanti Edison-Lahm
In Regards to Direction.
This is mostly a mechanical class where each week we explore different planes with the final week being the culmination of movement in all the planes. For example, translation in the x-y plane, then graduating to rotation, lean, and movement in the y-z and z-x plane. This series will be wonderful for linear thinkers.
Athena Shanti Edison-Lahm cofounded Barefoot blues in January of 2010. She started partner dancing in 2005 and has been hooked ever after. But her love of dancing didn’t start there, no, her infatuation started before she could walk. Wearing nothing but her diaper, two year old Athena would hold on to the television set, watch Michael Jackson hypnotically and attempt to dance like him. Though she did not master the moonwalk right away she gained a love of dance that led her to study tap, jazz, ballet, modern, african and be a company member in such dance companies as iN.GAUGE Dance Company and Urban Arts.
