Teaching Improvisational Skills with Nadira Jamal
Many dancers are frustrated by improvisation, and it’s no wonder. Teachers often throw them into the improv “deep end” by telling them to “just do it” in class. Nadira Jamal, creator of the Improvisational Toolkit will help you learn how to start your students off in the “shallow end” successfully teaching improvisational skills that they can apply to their own dance journeys.
