Donnetta “Lil Bit” Jackson @ Perfect Our Craft Workshop

16836518_1490614360963170_6401935038882879177_o

P.O.C. is meant to educate in more ways than one. Giving you the opportunity to hone your skills while exploring other styles​. Versatility is a key roll in being a dancer because it allows you to play around with different avenues. Imparting knowledge in a specific area that you may have been unfamiliar with. We’ll be bringing you people from our very own community as well as working industry choreographers and dancers. Giving you history, experience, life lessons, and technique in the art form. Toward the end of the workshop we will be engaging in a Q&A. Further enlightening you on the business aspect of dance as well as other necessities you should be aware of. This will be especially helpful for the inquiring minds seeking help on their path to becoming a professional dancer or becoming a better dancer overall.
