Automatic Layering Generating Madness

Jun 10, 2013 10:03:00 AM

Tribal Fusion Layers Generator:

An online tool to add even more excitement to your daily practice!

We here at Datura Online are REALLY psyched about this new tool:

Layers Generator

A graphic designer and dance lover has come up with a game-like way to improve your skills; layering by chance, with this online randomizer.

It breaks down layers into body regions - chest, hips, legs, and arms, and gives you different layers to do for each body region. With a click, new layers are randomly created for *endless* hours of fun, in French and English! Guess what we're doing on our lunch break...

Oh, and she seems to have some great taste in music.

Thanks Charline Mancoucut!
