Metro Art Presents The Floor + The Open Floor Society
Sunday, August 14, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
(Doors at 12:30pm + Dance Workshops begin at 1:00) Union Station Historic Ticketing Hall
Join us for the last in our summer series with The Floor Improv! Together with instructors from The Open Floor Society we invite Metro riders and the L.A. community of ALL AGES to learn a few steps of multiple styles of dance and movement, then to join us for the THE FLOOR Improv jam! This time we'll learn samba, Polynesian dance and more!
THE FLOOR Improv Night is a creative crossroads where music and dance come together to explore the magic of improvisation. We bring together artists from all walks of life and act as a laboratory where the soul leads and the body follows. "Picture South America's sultry, happening neighborhood milonga, throw in some of Hollywood's most talented career dancers and you get a sense of the scene..." (Los Angeles Magazine, 25 Best Nights Out). A live band sets the tone and provides a blend of jazz, funk, Latin sounds, Afro beat and more. Dancers respond generously with a free flow of creative intermingling of tango, breakdancing, swing, salsa, hip hop, tap, capoeira - whatever the music calls for. THE FLOOR joyfully turns the notion of the performer and audience upside down.
