2:45pm - 4:15 - Dana Dachel: FASTidious - This FUNtastic workshop is meant to internalize and refine fast movements in the ATS® vocabulary. The four foundation fast moves set the stage for so many possibilities, with endless opportunities to balance control and intensity to maintain composure! Let's dig in with a refinement focus on fast L1: Hip Bump, Egyptian, Shimmy, Arabic. Beyond the basics, we will do a quick inventory of familiarity with advanced moves and design the remainder of the workshop built around theory and practices you can take home to enhance your FASTidiousness!!!
