"The Secrets of Close-Partner Dance" Workshop

  • Oct 24, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Private home/studio

Join us for another delightful dance workshop, followed by a guided practice and wine & cheese social! -- a terrific way to meet people and have fun while learning new skills together!                                 

TWO THURSDAY "Stand-Alone" WORKSHOP's:  7:00-9:00pm (with Wine & Cheese Social 9:00-9:45pm)  PLEASE NOTE: These workshops are held at a PRIVATE HOME STUDIO in the Eastlake neighborhood of Seattle (Directions to be given upon registration)

• OCT 10th, 2013:  "Musicality, Syncopations, & Styling" (for both Leads & Follows)  - Whether you like to dance solo or with a partner, learning how to syncopate, to style, and to apply musicality to your steps and movement is the best way to add your unique flavor to your partnership and to spice up your dance.  Syncopation and styling are elements that you can do independently from your partner.  Musicality is awareness of how your movements & energy reflect the energy, rhythm, and arc of the music you're listening to. The secret is in learning how to garnish your dance with this kind of pizazz, but not take anything away from your partnership. This class takes you to that next level. (All Levels welcome - No partner needed)

• OCT 24th, 2013:  "The Secrets of Close Connection Dance"   - Blues, Tango, and Fusion are extremely popular dance forms these days that often incorporate a close-embrace connection.  This unique, respectful, well-established, social-dance connection opens up a whole new and exciting world of possibility for movement and partnership on the dance floor.  In this workshop we'll introduce the art of social-dancing in close-embrace, applying unique movements and steps that can be initiated with leads as subtle as a breath. Gain a whole new level of appreciation for the art of dancing to a whisper, then powering up from there.  Informative, engaging, insightful, fun!.  (All welcome - No partner needed but always encouraged!)



All Thursday workshops will be held at a Private Studio in the Eastlake Neighborhood of Seattle.  Detailed directions will be sent upon registration. Come early to sign in, change shoes, stretch, warm up, etc.  Stay after for the guided practice, socializing, & schmoozing.



THURSDAYs:  Each Thursday stand-alone workshop includes 2 hrs of instruction, plus a guided practice and wine & cheese social to follow. 

• One Workshop = $25

• Both Workshops = $40  ($10 savings)  

• STUDENTS (anyone under age 25):  $15 per workshop

    Sounds like a great workshop. I hope you offer it again as I already have a book study on Thursday nights for another couple of weeks.
