Are you ready to take your blues dancing to the next level?
Classes are aimed at dancers who have a very good understanding of the fundamentals of blues dancing, are able to lead or follow with confidence and clarity, and are ready to be challenged.
Come and get down to detailed traditional blues with 6 hours of teaching from the fantastic Vivien and Philippa. www.viviennivesse.com/philippa-svensson
There will be one core track so that we can build a cohesive curriculum over the weekend, and share the experience as a group.
A message from Vivien and Philippa: “Belta Blues, the name is new but the concept stays the same! Challenging concepts and lessons, for intermediate to advanced dancers, grounding our Blues with Trad techniques to better let our individual creativity and expression blossom.
This year will see a combination of solo body movement, Trad partner styles, flash moves, musicality and creativity. We’ll talk about different music styles and dance styles, to a wide range of tempos. As always we aim to challenge you to work on your body awareness and breaking down your habits, all to evolve into something new!
The main courses will be articulated around:
Dancing to triplets in the music
Connecting with your partner both in simple-but-new patterns, and in more flashy ballrooming styles
Tackling up-tempo Blues
Working on solo body movement to integrate your pulse, as well as bring cool individual variations in your dancing.
We can’t wait to be back and we hope to see you soon ! “
