The Sunday taster session is open to boys and girls and will include two dance classes and a short presentation and Q&A for both parents and students about the CAT.

This workshop will be led by award-winning choreographer and dance artist, Robby Graham, Artistic Director of Southpaw Dance Company.

Robby will lead participants in a 'Breakin' Foundation' class. In this class Robby will cover some basic aspects of foundations in Breaking. Top Rock, Drops, Footwork, and Freezes will be covered in this accessible approach to Breaking technique. The second part of the workshop will be a Creative Session where you'll explore a range of creative tasks and games to help you discover new movement possibilities.
