Raq-On Dance Dynamic Cards for Practice

 These cards have been used at the studio and in my own practice for years. Dancers loved the method so much we had them professionally printed. Along with your cards you'll receive corresponding hour-long download demonstrating how they can help you grow as a dancer. The cards can be used for improvisation, drills, and creating choreography.

As students, we learn dance in different ways: visually by watching, hands on by doing/practicing, and finally by hearing the music and connecting to the embedded emotion. Most dancers find it too overwhelming to tackle all of these methods at once and get frustrated or even shut down. Stop beating yourself up! We don’t learn to walk by trying to run, do we? We feel the ground, find our balance,and take baby steps until we have enough practice and courage to take off running.  The cards are divided into 3 areas of drilling and exploration: movements, dynamics, and emotions. Soon, you'll no longer need to memorize combinations you learned in workshops or from other dancers. You'll have your own unique movement vocabulary that you can pull from memory at the flick of a zill!  Perfect for practicing on your own, with a friend, in class, or giving as a gift to a fellow dancer who may be going through her own dancer version of writer's block
