*LondonLive is focused on helping dancers deepen their understanding of musical structures and forms, improving timing, interpreting rhythms and musical signals from the band and expressing the deeper meaning behind the music. For that reason LondonLive is taught by conservatoire-trained musicians and the majority of the dance work is improvised. Mostly, there is no dance teacher (although Guy Schalom will teach stick dance techniques on Sunday morning). The work is very unique in that sense and extremely powerful having produced some remarkable results for previous participants of all levels.
