With celebrated dance reality television shows such as So You Think You Can Dance, contemporary dance has become more popular than ever!
On this DVD, award-winning dancer and choreographer Albert Cattafi introduces you to his energetic style of contemporary jazz.
Albert will guide you through "across the floor" combinations, floor work, improvisational skills, and two routines for intermediate and advanced levels. Albert emphasizes musicality, level changes and dynamics throughout his innovative choreography. All steps are broken down slowly and the choreography sections are shown from the back for easier learning.
For intermediate and advanced dancers.
