Leslie Scott has traveled the globe doing what she loves best. Teaching. It is not about fame, status or YouTube hits, but a true love of dance is what makes Leslie one of a kind. Leslie is a teacher to her core and her classes reflect that. Your dancers will walk away with new confidence in the way they dance and more importantly in themselves.
Dance for the Mind, Body and SOUL! Open your Mind and your Body will follow! As dancers we will see stunning results by working on our mind and Spirit before our movement! After all, what our body does is just a reflection of what our minds and Souls are thinking and feeling!! If we are thinking insecure, self-defeating thoughts, then our success rate to retain choreography or even learn the specific skill being taught will decrease.
This class will focus on some of the secret tools I have learned over my 23 years as a Hip-Hop teacher that will break down those mental and emotional barriers in students of all ages, gender and skill level so you can experience the gift dance was meant to be!!
Let Music Be Your GPS
This class will address a very specific and crucial skill: MUSICALITY! Learning the lyrics, the instruments (piano, bass, sneer, etc.) AND all in the correct rhythms and syncopation’s is our goal! ! These three abilities will nurture a musical ear that will make your dance go from average to Brilliant! ! Nothing is more frustrating than learning a combination that looks one way when you do it slow with the teacher and then a completely different routine when the music comes on.
As a dancer our music is our GPS! Let’s me help you become an amazing Musical Map Reader!!
The difference between dancing to impress or dancing to inspire starts with your Spirit Swag!! We don’t want our audience to watch us dance, but to FEEL us dance!! The root of this is authentic emotion speaking through your movement. I will address how to create camaraderie among your dance company that people can feel on stage, combat competition among your peers, taking care of yourself outside the classroom and how to use opportunities to perform as a lesson in accountability, community and the rewards of a strong team work ethic! I will share exercises on facials, structure, lines, levels, rehearsal etiquette, etc. that will not only yield the best results but will give the most memorable journey to the final destination of performing!!
