Saturday, 14 July 2018 - Saturday, 21 July 2018
  A partir de 16 ans


Description

Waltzing, swirling, whirling around … What about a week of waltzes on most diverse and stirring music ?

Based on a repertory of various waltzes, this workshop offers an approach of the dance* as much technical as intuitive.

Do you want to waltz properly? Get into the technical aspects allowing you to turn better? Feel more relaxed in your body? Learn how to let yourself go in the dance? Become a good leader as much as a good follower, find the adequate posture, spare your energy and communicate in the dance?

Would you like to sense more about the musicality of those waltzes? Get to catch the musical subtleties which can feed your steps? Offer yourself the possibility of playing with rhythm and variations?

In a playful, creative, friendly, and respectful atmosphere, we propose a travel among all those aspects, with as an extra, some discovery moments of other kinds of waltzes, besides the ones we’ll be using as main material.

 

So join us for twirling week, we’ll get up and waltz!

* The kind of waltzes (Viennese, Swedish, auvergnate, musette, cajun, slow, irregular etc.) will be chosen according to the group.

Dance level

The workshop has been designed for (semi)-advanced dancers. It is preferable to either have some experience with a kind of waltz, or at least a couple dance.
We will give custom individual exercises and corrections, so that everyone can progress at their own speed, regardless of their initial level. If the size of the group allows, we can advance at 2 speeds at some times.

Important information

It is not necessary to sign up as a couple, we will often change partner, and everybody will be invited - but not obliged - to dance as a leader as much as a follower. 

Language: The workshop will be given in French, with succinct translations into English or German if necessary. 

The workshop will partly be given on live music by Caroline (violin & accordion) !

What to bring

- Bring at least one pair of shoes with soles that allow you to slide and turn: one with a small heel, one without heels, or even just socks.

- Bring one pair that allows dancing on concrete, for the evening dances.

- If you like, bring comfortable clothes for stretching on the floor, and a yoga mat

- For the evening dances, why not bring a wide skirt, dress, and some typical "waltz outfits"

Note on our series on "Waltzes"

In "Waltzes of yesterday and today" (2017), we offer a journey through a large number of waltzes, without going very far into technique or rhythmic variations. It is a rather "horizontal" journey of discovery.
In "The 3 beats of the waltz: technique, musicality, variations" (2018) we choose fewer different waltzes, and go further in technique and musicality; and finally, possible variations for each.
These two workshops are therefore complementary, although obviously, there is a part in common.
