This new January Beginner class, we will explore the use of ‘heavy’ core and limbs and an ‘open’ back posture while we learn a series of patterns on upright (beta-dai) stands. We will also take a closer look at body alignment and how all these elements combined improve not only hitting technique but sound quality. This simple yet dynamic set of patterns was brought to us by Joe Small who has studied and pursued Taiko in a variety of locations in Japan and the United States. He received an MFA in dance at UCLA. We recommend registrants to have participated in a Beginner Level 1 class.
