Emerald Hips SkirtProv™

SkirtProv™ is an original improv format created by Stacey Nolan and the Emerald Hips Student Troupe. We began developing this format in 2009 as a way to spontaneously dance together without having pre-arranged choreography. And we found it to be a unique and dynamic addition to our dance sets.


SkirtProv™ can be used in duets, trios and even large groups of 20 or more! This unique style using large colorful skirts as props, is fun, dynamic and visually engaging.
