Ben & Cameo Intensive

5 Elements of Texture

In this Intensive, Ben and Cameo McHenry will break down your movement into 5 "Elements of Texture" allowing you to focus on small building blocks one at a time. This will provide a clear, tangible path for everyone to start (or continue) building your own style and musicality, so that you can bring more of your artistry into WCS. 

As the intensive progresses, you will learn to identify your initial "creative voice", as well as discover potential strengths to promote with confidence and weaknesses to improve upon.

The 5 elements include: Rhythm Changes, Height Changes, Angle Changes, Speed Changes and Body Movement.

Join Ben and Cameo for a 3 hour WCS Intensive! This intensive will heighten your technique and elevate your dancing to the next level!  This intensive will be open to all levels, however clear knowledge of your basics is expected. Space is limited to 25 leaders and 25 followers.
