7:00 - 8:00pm

Foundations Class: Dynamism & Momentum

Although everyone is responsible for moving their own body when blues dancing, we still create and utilise momentum. This often leads to very dynamic dancing, which is one way of responding to the complexities and tension in blues musics. We can make something dynamic, such as a turn, by speeding it up, slowing it down, etc.

In this class we'll look at two options when leading and following a turn that allow us to use different amounts of momentum. We'll also play with various other dynamics in our blues dancing.

As always, complete beginners welcome, no partner necessary.

8:00 - 9:00PM

Improvers+ Class: Momentum and Flow

In this class we're going use flow and the creation and redirection of momentum to explore dynamic shapes.

Prerequisites: Some familiarity with the concepts and use of leverage-tension and compression.
