Semba & Kizomba Body Movement (6-8pm)

This 2 hour workshop will develop both lead and follow body
movement. Quality of movement is a crucial factor in how you “feel” as
a dancer, and through the techniques and exercises completed in the
workshop you will have the tools to continue to develop your range of
motion in the weeks and months following….You WILL be sore by the
end! but that’s just your body adapting to a greater depth of movement
which will translate into more beautiful and elegant ginga on the
dance floor.

This 2 hour workshop will help you create seamless connection with
your partner by experiencing what it’s like to dance “on the other

clear, and readable lead, and more gentle and smooth follow. The class
will feature several exercises designed to facilitate these changes to
your dancing technique.

on subtle movments and isolations as two bodies move as one to the
music. This class will teach you everything you need in terms of
basics of Tarraxinha dancing.

movements. Workshop attendees will learn several ways to execute
social dance appropriate leans safely (and beautifully :))
