Contact Workshop: Momentum and Ease in Lifting and Leaping
- Saturday the 15th I'll be in town and teaching a workshop at Carolyn Stuart's studio. It will be from 11am to 4pm, and will be full of material I'm excited to share. I will be teaching before the Tuesday jam on 9/10, so come dance with me there for a taste of the workshop!
The intermediate level workshop will focus on cultivating lightness in the dance and harnessing this when supporting other dancers. Much of the work will center on using momentum to enter lifts, but will also include some techniques for personal lightness and putting force through your partner's structure when flying. We will work on the ground, with lifts, and with leaping and catching other dancers. Come ready to move and have fun!
Please bring food for a half hour break, and knowing that the Saturday jam follows directly after the workshop if you want to stay and practice/dance!
$45 on or before 9/11/2013
