Movement Lifestyle artist: Shaun Evaristo
Description: I am originally from Toronto, Canada, but I spent a year studying in Australia. While I was there, Shaun Evaristo and Ian Eastwood came out and taught workshops in a few cities. The timing couldn’t have been any better. Even though the price was kind of ridiculous, I didn’t even think twice about taking the workshop, and it was all worth it in the end. He taught his piece to 10 seconds which isn’t on YouTube, and I’m so glad he taught this piece. I had heard he taught another class his ‘My Own Planet’ piece, and although that’s a dope as piece, learning 10 seconds I feel helped me grow as a dancer. It was very very emotional and conversational. The choreography wasn’t difficult to pick up which made it all the more fun to learn. After the workshop, there were so many things that I had realized about dance that I may never have known if it wasn’t for Shaun teaching that piece. I am so grateful and so thankful for the opportunity and I hope everyone can experience what I felt that day because it really is about more than just dancing.
