Jazz and Open Structures.
Dates: 11/15 5:30-7:30, 11/16 11:30-1:30
I wish for my participants to become familiar with a spectrum of structures. To sense, as we move, where we are on that spectrum. To sense what the instructions do and do not cover. An obvious given is the body: what is its potential based on innate ability, talent, past training, temper, and this moment’s degree of readiness?
