------------ DESCRIPTIONS -----------
• TUESDAY, July 1st, 2014: "Advanced Concepts for Partnering & Connection for ALL Dancers": The hallmark of advanced dancers is that they are aware of and utilize energy, direction, momentum, rotation, and tension in their partnership more than just memorizing footwork or patterns. Understanding these concepts can be taught at every skill level, and opens up an exciting world of possibility for improvisation and "conversational" movement in your dance. In this workshop you'll gain a whole new level of appreciation for the art of dancing at the level of a whisper, then learning to power up from there. Here, we'll focus primarily on compression, extension, swiveling, and creating rotational movement. Informative, engaging, insightful, fun!
• TUESDAY, July 8th, 2014: "The Art of 4-Dimensional Connection": Take your dancing to the next level with the 4-D experience: "See it, Hear it, Feel it, Express it". Another in our series of "advanced partnering and connection concepts for all skill levels", in this class we'll play with 1) How to use tension to communicate your intention to your partner, and 2) How to add individual expression and musicality to your partnering.
'Expressions' are elements that you can either do independently from your partner or together (if you know how to lead it!). '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.
