Zills Choreography, Summer 2022

WHERE: Live in person, live online + class recordings!!  See https://GinaDances.Podia.com
TIME: 6:00-7:00
WHEN: Tuesdays, June 21-August 9, no class July19.


This class is designed for new and returning intermediate students, as well as any advanced student who would like to work on zills technique and partial choreography.  If you have not performed zills at the INTERMEDIATE level, this is the correct class for you during the Summer of 2022.   Gina will purchase the zills for you, but if you already own them, let her know by June 10.  Zills, aka, Finger Cymbals, are an instrument played by dancers.  It is part of the Intermediate curriculum including veil and cane performance.   It has a learning curve all its own which begins with walking while playing zills.  We work up to dancing with zills.  After learning to play zills, this class will begin a zills choreography and may or may not finish it.   The focus for this semester is learning zills rather than completing a choreography.  The choreography will be finished in the Fall for local students who choose  to perform it in the show.  This class will be taught in person, it will also be broadcast live online, and high quality replays will be made available to everyone who is enrolled.  Local students are required to attend this class in person unless ill due to the need to hear the zills in time with the music.  For remote students, please note that while Gina will be able to critique movement as usual, critiquing zill playing will have to be accomplished slightly differently due to varying internet connection speeds.   This is a required class in the intermediate level sequence  (including multiple technique semesters, veil, cane and zills) prior to taking any intermediate or advanced classes during 2023.  Masks are optional.  


PLEASE NOTE: All classes above beginner level require instructor permission (by email).   Masks are optional.  


LOCATION: Hanover Rec Center, 48 Lebanon Street, Hanover NH, and a Zoom link will be provided.
