Professor Brown is a very good dance teacher who is knowledgeable about all different styles of dance. There is little homework outside of class except for a couple readings. There is basically no exams (the reading quizes are very short and simple).

This course is very relaxed and absolutely suited to anyone who has 0 previous experience with dance. Meshi is a lenient grader for the few assignments he gives, and doesn't evaluate your dance on technique - instead, he simply values active participation and willingness to step out of your comfort zone and try new things. If you are expecting to learn any specific dance style/technique, you will not find it in this course. It is very much focused on movement exploration and getting to know the body, which is a great experience in it's own way, just not what you'd conventionally expect from a dance class.

This course focuses more on yourself and your relationship with your body, as well as your confidence in expressing yourself. We don't really do much formal choreography nor traditional dance techniques, it's mostly improvisational and "letting your body move the way it wants to". The class environment is very welcoming and there are no mistakes, and the community that Meshi builds is a very supportive one. It's a great beginner course for becoming more comfortable in your body and being more confident in expressing dance.

Christal Brown is well versed and well informed on the art of dance. The class environment she creates is welcoming and lax, however she is very blunt and will call out subpar work. You're not graded on how well you dance but rather how hard you try. Overall a really great class.

a little cooky but super sweet. She's really big on attendance so do not plan on skipping out on class if you want to end up with a good grade. There are a lot of extra dance events that you have to attend outside the class which is pretty annoying but other than that the class is very easy

I enjoyed getting to move a lot in this course. We danced every class, and I definitely felt more comfortable and confident dancing by the end of it. We didn't learn technique and rarely practiced choreography, which meant that people of any skill level could participate and the environment was very relaxed. On the other hand, the class did not include much "book learning" and could be very spiritual (which has pros and cons).

Meshi is really nice. There will be a final performance at the end of the course, and you will need to choreograph something. Overall a very relaxed and enjoyable class and highly recommend if you want to fulfill your ART distribution.
